SRI KADUMBADI CHINNAMMAN TEMPLE - SAIDAPET, CHENNAI, on the banks of river Adyar.

06th November 2016.
This temple is estimated to be of more than 400 years, to prove it’s antiquity there is no inscription or evidence available in side the temple.

The temple is facing east with a 3 tier Rajagopuram. The palipedam, Dwajasthambam and Simha vahana are in the front mandapam. In the outer prakaram sannadhi for the original anthill shrine, Varasidhi Vinayagar, Kannimar with vinayagar relief on the stone panel, Annanmaars with their weapons relief on a stone panel, Sthala viruksham Neem tree, Madurai Veeran and Kathavarayan.

In the sanctum  there are two moorthams and smaller one is swayambu. The swayambu moortham was found when excavated for the temple’s construction. It was told that on 23-02-1982, milk came from the trunk of the sthala viruksham neem tree.  

Tamil Adi month ( July- Aug ) especially on Fridays the devotees gather in large numbers and prepare pongal and offer to  Sri Kadumbadi Chinnamman.  During that time the traffic  will be diverted to the other roads. It was strongly believed that Amman will cure all the deceases and remove all obstacles.  I was fortunate to have the dharshan of Amman’s abhishekam.
