Thiruverkadu Karumariamman Temple History

As per the folklore, Goddess Karumari disguised herself as an old nomadic lady and went to Sun God to forecast his future. Sun God unknowingly Ignored Devikarumari. Goddess Karumari disappeared with the Sun God act. Soon the brightness of Sun God started diminishing. Realising his ignorance, Sun God pleaded Goddess Karumari for his mistake. Sun God also requested Goddess Karumari to make Sunday as the day of the Goddess for which Goddess accepted. So Sunday is celebrated as the day of Karumari
Sun rays touch the head of Devikarumari twice in a year which happens in the month of Panguni and Purattasi.

.As per the Legend, Lord Venkateswara once visited Thiruverkadu to see the glory of the Goddess Kumari. Karumari requested Lord Venkateswara to stay here and bless devotees. Lord Venkateswara accepted her request and stayed here.
