SRI ANUPAMASTHINI AMBAL SAMEDHA SRI DHEVATHI RAJEESWARAR TEMPLE - ARUMBAKKAM, VELUR DISTRICT – AN AHIMSA WALK.

07th January 2018.
For a change this week joined with Jain community heritage enthusiasts  for the Ahimsa walk  at Asa Nellikuppam, UppuKulam ( a part of Arakonam Town ) and Kavanur lead by Mrs Sasikala devi. Though this Shiva  temple visit was not planned earlier, added  in the list since it was told that a theerthangarar was kept along with nagars under Bhodhi tree, which was excavated in the Village. 

Iraivan: Sri Devathi Rajeeswarar
Iraivi    : Sri Anupamathini Ambal
Some of the important features are...

The temple is facing east without any Rajagopuram. Dwajasthambam, Palipedam and Nandhi Mandapam are on the east side entrance. Entrance to the Main shrine is from South. The sanctum sanctorum consists of sanctum, antarala, arthamandapa and mahamandapam.  Ambal is facing suth in the mahamandapam. Urchavars are in the Mahamandapam. The sanctum out side has the ahazhi.

In kashtam Vinayagar, Dhakshinamurthy, Maha Vishnu ( in Lingothbavar place ), Brahma and Durgai. In the prakaram sannadhi for Selva Ganapathy, Saraswathy, Gajalakshmi, Valli devasena Subramaniyar, Naalvar, Bairavar, Sapthamathar, Suryan, Chandran, Balaganapathy, balamurugan, Arumugar and Sandikeswarar.

It was told that the temple is 1000 years old. The inscriptions are not clear due to sand blasting. The temple was renovated and Kumbhabhishekam was performed on 04-06-2017.

As per the legend, Durvasa Maharishi gave Indira, the garland after performed pooja to Lord Mahavishnu. His vahana Iravatham destroyed he garland with it’s leg. On seeing this Muni Durvasa cursed Indira to loose his Indira / Raja position and a reduced life.  To get rid of the  curse, after visiting many Shiva temple, came to this place Arumpakkam worshipped Lord Shiva with a lotus from the akazi. Lord shiva blessed him with full life and gave the Indra postion also. Hence those who lost their job may pray Lord Shiva to get back and a good  place for conducting poojas  to increase the life like, Shastiyampatha poorthy and Sthabhishekam.  To get rid of problems related to womb, abhishekam may  be performed to Ambal with 108 lemon juice.
