The Vekkaliamman Temple is situated  7 km from Trichy in the town of Woraiyur, Tamil Nadu. The temple is one of the important pilgrimage centres as well as a seat of Cholas. The specialty of this temple is that its main residing deity does not have a roof over his head. This feature is based on the legend where Goddess Vekkaliamman instructed her devotees for not building a roof over her head until every person in the world has a shelter. The north facing of the idols present in this temple is also one noticeable feature. Special days of this temple are  Tuesdays and Fridays.

This temple is located at Uraiyur, the heart of the main city. The uniqueness of the temple is the main deity is located without roof. Vekkaaliman is the powerful goddess worshiping her is believed to be leading great success in our life.

"People found all around"

Always worth a visit, although the parking is something that was nothing to write about, people were all over the place, something that we have to understand that running helter skelter, not bothered to move in a queue.
