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.
