About Arulmigu Masani Amman Temple

Located about 24 km south west of Pollachi, at the confluence of Aliyar River and Uppar Stream, the Anaimalai Masani Amman Temple enshrines Goddess Arulmigu Masani Amman. The deity is seen in a lying posture and represented with four hands. According to an interesting legend, during the Sangam Era, Annamalai was ruled by a chief called Nannan. He had a big mango grove and was so possessive of it that he appointed check post officials to guard the trespassers. It so happened that one day a woman was bathing in the Aliyar River and a mango came floating to her in the waters. Unable to resist tasting it, she bit it. This was reported to the ruler and the innocent woman was produced before him. She pleaded that she did not steal the mango. Nonetheless, she was executed. Angered by the unjustifiable ruler, her kins killed him in a battle. People then started worshipping her to honor her martyrdom and soon a temple was built for the same. The temple is bustling with energy during the festival of Kundam Thiru Vizha where an image of the diety is made if clay and taken to a graveyard. Prayers are then offered to it. Formality of Kankhan ,Kundam lighting and Mahamuni Pooja follow shortly. Furthermore the temple is said to bless barren women with offspirngs and pregnant women with good health!
