Mangadu Kamakshi Temple History

As per the Legend, Goddess Parvati mistakenly closed Lord Siva’s eyes, as a result, the entire universe fell into darkness. Goddess Parvati pleaded Lord Siva for her ignorance. As instructed by Lord Siva, Goddes Parvati performed strict penance at Mangadu (Mango trees or forest). She held Japamala and stood on her left leg and folding right leg in the mid of “Panchagni” and performed Strict for Lord Siva. Impressed Lord Siva appeared before the Godded and asked her to come to Kanchipuram for marriage. Goddess moved without turning off the holy fire.  Sri Adi Sankaracharya installed Sri Ardhameru Chakram to reduce the heat in this region. The heat came down and restored the natural living in this region. Unmarried girls offer prayers to the goddess to find a better match
