Arulmigu Arasu Katha Mariamman Temple
Thiruverumbur, Trichy District
Main Deity : Arasu Katha Mariamman.
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.
