About Samayapuram Mariamman Temple

Samayapuram Mariamman Temple is popular among the Hindu followers. The origin of the temple dates back to the 18th century. It is believed that the temple was built under the rule of King Vijayaraya Chakkaravati. The rulers built the temple as a token of gratitude to the Goddess when they won the battle against their rivals. The idol is made of sand and clay and is believed to possess supernatural powers that can cure prolonged illnesses. During their visit to the temple, people buy metallic look-alikes of steel and silver. It is beleived that keeping them in touch with the body would heal the illness. The pilgrims also present the famous Mavilakku, a food made up of jaggery, ghee, and rice flour. Hundreds of pilgrims visit the temple during the sacred time of Mariamman and other festivals. The Thai Poosam is the prime festival that is celebrated here. The Chariot Festival in the month of April is another attraction. The chariot of the Goddess is carried in the streets of the town. The Samayapuram is a landmark of great religious and cultural heritage to the state.
