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.
