Madura Kali Amman Temple is situated in Siruvachur Village off Trichy-Chennai Higway 15 kms. south of Perambalur and 48 kms from Trichy. The Goddess is known as Sri Madhurambhika.
Significance of Madura Kali Amman Temple:
The temple is open during Monday and Friday only as on other days it is beleived that the Goddess guards the village from the hills nearby along with her guards - Sri Selliamman and Sri Karuppanna swamy.
According to legends Goddess Parvati, consort of Lord Shiva came down to earth in the form of Kali to destroy the asura Charukan, who had been terrorizing the innocent and helpless living in these hills. After Kali destroyed him, Lord Shiva appeared and cooled her anger. He blessed Kali and asked her to stay as the guardian and benefactor of the people in the hills.
Another popular legend regarding her descent from the hills to the foothills revolves around the great Saint Adi Shankara. One day Adi Shankara was passing through the foothills of Madhira malai and rested under a tree. As he was concentrating on the Goddess, she appeared before him as a spring to quench his thirst. She showed her true form to Adi Sankara, blessed him and become an idol. Adi Sankara then consecrated this idol which is now worshipped as Madurakali Amman.
