Muthumariamman Temple
Arimalam, Pudukkottai




Main Deity : Muthumariamman.

Prominence of the shrine : “Mari” in Tamil means Rain.  So she is called as “Mazhaiyai Tharubaval” (Goddess who gives rain).  People  believe that small pox /chicken pox is spread and cured by Mariamman.  During drought season if we worship this Goddess, we will be  blessed with rain.  It is also believed that offering porridge (kuzh) will bring rain.  As the Goddess resides in Neem tree (vepamaram)  she is called as “Vepilaikari”.  Christening pongal, neerkanchi varthal, taking palsombu, taking kanmadal are some of the common  systems followed in this temple.  Mariamman worship is commonly found in all towns.  But worshipping this Goddess cures deadly  diseases.  Special poojas are done on Fridays in the Tamil months of Aadi (jul 15-aug 15) and Thai (jan 15 –feb 15).  As per the saying  of our Scholars, when we consider flame of the lamp (Deepa chuddar) as the God who is spread everywhere, all our darkness will be  removed and pleasure will be lit in our life.  Lighting ghee lamps (nei deepam) will avoid all negative things and give pleasure in your  life.
