Aayiram Kaliamman Temple is renowned for housing a wooden statue of the goddess. According to legend, it is believed that the box containing the parts of the body of the goddess was founded by a devotee of Senguntha Mudaliar community on the sea coast of Thirumalairajan Pattinam.
Later, the goddess arrived in his dreams and commanded him to worship her. On opening the wooden box, devotees found the statue of the goddess along with a palm leaf, which has a script describing that the daily pooja should be done with 1000 articles. Since then, the Sengunda Mudaliar community performs a three day festival during the months of May and June once in five years.
