Arulmigu Thillai Kali Amman Temple - Chidambaram


Magha Nakshatra : Arulmigu Thillai Kali Amman Temple - Chidambaram
This holy temple is situated towards the North side of world famous Sri Nataraja Temple, Chidambaram. It is 1.5 Km from Railway Station in the Chennai - Tanjore main Line of the Southern Railway. We have the facility to come here both by train and Raod ways.

There is an interesting story that my granddad shared with me about the erection of this temple in the outskirt of the town. It seems there was an argument that who is superior among Lord Siva and his wife Shakthi.In order to clear this doubt, Shiva decided to perform a dance at Chidambaram, infront of Lord Vishnu and Lord Brahma. Both Siva and Sakthi were performing and when Siva was about to get defeated, he did "Oorthava Thandava" (one of the position in dance where one raises their leg above their head). This couldnt be performed by Sakthi due to shyness and awkwardness. Since she couldnt do it, she accepted her defeat and in anger went to the extreme end of the town. Her deity at Thillai Kali Temple is a deity in anger and has four faces. It seems that the anger was pacified by Brahma's chanting and singing in praise of her.

'Thillai Kali' is a deity in anger. This anger was pacified by Bhahma by Chenting Veda and also praising her. Because of the penance of Lord Brahma 'Kali' became Cool. So that Goddess 'Thillai Amman' in this temple seems with four faces. Stone Inscripts : The Hindu 'Shoza' periods are represented in the inscriptions in this temple. This temple about construction in the regime of 'Kopperunsingan'
