THE ELLAI AMMAN TEMPLES OF MADUVANKARAI & GUINDY MANGULAM – IN SEARCH OF ELLAI AMMAN TEMPLES OF MAMBALAM.

19th Feb 2018.
ELLAI AMMAN TEMPLE,  MADUVANKARAI ( GUINDY )
After a gap of about 2 months started my search for the Ellai Amman / Kaval Theivangal – Guarding deities -  Temples  of Mambalam.  When I was trying to  cross the newly constructed bridge from Guindy race course to Alandur, happened to see  a board written as Ellai Amman Temple.  The Temple is under the bridge covered with grill arrangement. It was told that this Ellai Amman is for the Maduvankarai, a part of Guindy.  The temple is facing east  with a soolam in front of the deity. Deity is made of stucco and  regular poojas are conducted.



ELLAI AMMAN TEMPLE, GUINDY MANGULAM.
The flower vendor, told me that there is also a Ellai Amman temple near Guindy Bus stop after the bridge, behind Anjaneyar Temple on the MKN Road, Guindy.  It was told that there was a water body – kulam, in front of this temple, latter converted as an industrial area.  I suspect that this temple may be one of the Ellai Amman Temple of Guindy Mambalam. But is it true?, readers may throw some light on this point.

There is no deity in the sanctum, instead a photo is there under the peepal tree. It was told that regular poojas are also conducted, by whom, do not know. To be explored further.
