When I told about the missed opportunity of attending my friend Mr Venkatesh, son’s marriage at Devakottai, to one of my friend Mr Nachiappan, in turn invited me to Devakottai to attend the Kottai Amman’s annual 15 days festival, which is unique in nature and lakhs of people used attend from various parts of India. So I decided to attend the festival to get the blessings of Sri Kottai Amman. I stayed along with his family and visited Two shiva temple and a Saibaba temple.
SRI SAIBABA TEMPLE
This temple was built by former Chief justice A R Lakshmanan through his own fund and managed by his brothers. The temple is facing east with an entrance arch on south side. The Saibaba moortham was sculptured from white marble and brought from north India. A Vinayagar temple is by the side of Saibaba temple. The architecture is of north Indian style. It was told that Sri Saibaba’s miracle vibuthi appears on the plate.
HOW TO REACH :
- Devakottai is about 20 KM from Karaikudi and frequent buses are available from Karaikudi
