Ambal Gave Me Water!

Jaya Jaya Sankara Hara Hara Sankara – I did not know the history of this temple, great to know it now! Thanks to Shri S Muthu Subramaniam for the Whatsapp share. Ram Ram.

Many years ago, Maha Periava was on His way to having darshan of Sri Nandeeswarar at Parangimalai. En route He had darshan of Trisulanathar and Triburasundari and then rested for a while under a fig tree ( as He always walked, what ever be the distance).

He felt thirsty and so called out for one of His sishyas. But, since they were resting at a distance, none heard it. Then, there appeared a little girl with water in a ‘sombu’ and offered it to Him. He drank it and when He wanted to return the sombu, she was not be seen around any where. He asked every one, but none had even seen her. Then He sat in meditation for a while and realised that the girl was none other than Ambal herself.

He called the village head and other people and told them to dig the place where He sat. They found the vigraha of Balambika and Chandikeswari there. He told them to install the vigrahas and thus came about the present day Sri Vidya Raja Rajeswari temple at Nehru Nagar, Pazhavanthaangal, Nanganllur, Chennai.
