Arulmigu Masani Amman Temple, Anaimalai - Pollachi
Goddess Masani Amman temple is a powerful Amman (Mother) temple situated in Anaimalai, 14 kms from Pollachi, Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu. The temple is situated near the foot hills of Anaimalai and at the junction of Aliyar river and Uppar stream. The main deity is Goddess Masani Amman, derived from "Mayana Sayani" (which means one who sleeps in the graveyard). The other deities are the Neethi Kal (Stone of Justice) or Goddess of Justice in the serpent form and Lord Maha Muniappan.

The idol of Goddess Masani is very powerful and unique. It is very common to find the Goddess idols in the sanctum sanctorum either in standing or the sitting posture, but here the Goddess idol is in the lying posture. The Idol is very huge about 15 Feet in length and the very sight of the Goddess is fascinating. The Deity has four hands two raised above the ground and the other two placed on the ground. The hands are carrying the Trident, Drum, Snake and the Skull.

Thousands of people visit this temple and offer their prayers to Goddess Masani. People have a firm belief on the Goddess that she would solve all their problems and protect them from all evil. The devotees list all their needs, hopes and wishes in a piece of paper and give it to the temple priest to place it at the trident of the Goddess. It is believed that when one submits their wishes to the Goddess with utmost devotion, their wishes would be granted within a span of 3 weeks.

The another fascinating fact in the temple is the prayer offered to Goddess of Justice called the Neethi Kal in Tamil. The people who suffer from evil deeds of their enemies, Businessmen who have incurred loss, People who have lost their belongings offer their prayers to Neethi Kal for help and justice. They take bath and apply the holy ash over their body then they grind the chillies in the temple grinding stone. The ground chilly paste is then smeared all over the Neethi Kal with utmost devotion and prayers are offered for justice. It is believed that on doing so the people get relieved from their enemies and evil, the Lost property or belonging are regained and the businesses that were running on loss would become profittable.

LEGEND OF THIS TEMPLE:
There are several popular tales associated to the origin of Goddess Masani Amman temple.

The Tale of King Nannan and the Mango grove
In ancient times Anaimalai was called as Nannur and was ruled by the King Nannan. He owned a dense Mango grove beside the river Aliyar. He appointed several guards to protect the Mango grove and took punitive measures against the trespassers.

On a fateful day a group of girls were taking bath in the river Aliyar. One of the girls came across a mango that had fallen into the river from Nannan's Mango grove. She was tempted at the sight of the fruit and ate the mango forgeting its consequences. The guards informed the King about the incident. Angered the King Nannan immediately executed the girl for eating the fruit. Even though the girl pleaded for mercy and her father readily offered 81 elephants and gold equal to his daugther's weight, the King refused and mercilessly executed her. Later it is believed that the kith and kin of the girl became very furious thus attacked the King and killed him in the battle field. The girl was then buried in the graveyard beside the river Aliyar. The people later made a reclining image of the girl and started worshipping her. The girl was called as Goddess "Mayana Sayani" which gradually became Goddess Masani.

Lord Rama and Sage Vishwamitra
Another tale related to Goddess Masani Amman dates back to the time of Lord Rama. Sage Vishwamitra wanted to perform penance in the mountains of Kadaganachi. But the mountains were haunted by the demon Tataka who possessed evil powers to interrupt the Sage's penance. Hence Sage Vishwamitra requested King Dasaratha to send Lord Rama and Lakshmana along with him to the mountains of Kadaganachi. It is believed that the brothers made an idol of Goddess Parvathi and worshipped her to bless them with the strength to kill the demon. The Goddess Parvathi appeared before the brothers Rama and Lakshmana and granted the boon to kill the demon. She asked them to destroy her idol once the demon was killed. But it is believed that Lord Rama refused to destroy the idol since he wanted the idol to remain and save the people of that place. Thus the idol of Goddess Parvathi came to be known as Goddess Masani amman and is believed to guard its people from evil.

It is also believed that Lord Rama visited the Masani Amman temple on his way to Srilanka in search of sita.Lord Rama is believed to have performed penance at the graveyard where Goddess Masani amman idol was present. Pleased by His penance, Goddess Masani appeared to Lord Rama and blessed him for his victory over King Ravana.

The Tale of Devoted Couple
It is believed that a young couple lived in the village of Anaimalai. Both of them loved each other intensely and never departed from one another. The lady then became pregnant but she refused to leave her husband and go to her mother's place. It is tradition in India to go to ones mother's place during pregnancy for safe delivery. But one night when the wife realised that the time for delivery was nearing she requested her husband to take her to the midwife in her mother's village. The way to the mother's village was a dense forest and it was pitch dark. The couple prayed to the Lord and started towards the village on foot. On the way to the mother's village the wife was totally exhausted midway and asked her husband to leave her there to rest. She asked him to go to the village and get the midwife while she took some rest and waited for him. Her husband hesitantly left her alone in the forest and went to the midwife's house.

The man knocked at the midwife's door. She opened the door and looked at him totally shocked. On hearing his request she immediately started towards the forest along with the chieftain of the village and other elderly villagers. But when they reached the place all of them were shocked to see the Lady and her child lying dead. The midwife consoled the lady's husband and told him about the dream she had in the morning. She dreamt that a pregnant lady would be alone in the forest waiting for help. She would then be stalked by a demon. Terrified she would start running but would skid and fall by stepping over a cow dung. But when the demon would approach further and stoop to hold her hand. She would screams and warn him to leave her then the very instant a lightning would blind the demon. She would then take the mighty form of the Goddess Parvathi and kill the demon. Later she would reunite with the Goddess Parvathi in heaven. Thus the midwife narrates her dream associating it to the lady's death. Thus the man's wife was none other than an incarnation of Goddess Parvathi and she was reborn to destroy the evil. Once the evil was destroyed she has completed her objective of her birth and thus the soul has again reunited with the Goddess in heaven.

The midwife told the elderly people that the cowdung was also associated to a legend. While the Demigods and the Demons were churning the Ocean of Milk many beautiful valuable things emerged out of it. One of them was the Kamadhenu Cow which would grant anything one asks for. Thus the demons wanted to snatch Kamadhenu from demigods. Realising the danger Kamadhenu prayed to Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvathi for help. Thus Goddess Parvathi hid the cow in the Nandavanam (Garden). When the Devas later approached her she handed over Kamadhenu to them. At this instance Kamadhenu was frightened and dropped some dung in front of Parvathi. Later ashamed of the action Kamadhenu apologised to Goddess Parvathi. Goddess Parvathi then convinced Kamadhenu and blessed it that from then on cows would be worshipped and would be regarded divine. The Goddess also said that in her next birth she would step on the cow dung and the cow dung would be relieved of its mistake. Thus the midwife explained to the people present that the Goddess was thus reborn as this man's wife and thus stepped over the cowdung and relieved it from its curse.

The midwife also told the elderly people that the body of the lady should be buried and since she was an incarnation of Goddess Parvathi should be worshipped. But people were scared initially to go to the graveyard and offer prayers. But later seeing her power and blessings they made an idol of the lady in the graveyard in the reclining form and started worshipping it. A temple was later built and the Goddess was called Masani Amman.

Poojas and Festivals

On the 16th day the Ther (Chariot) festival is celebrated with grandeur. On the same day at around 10 PM in the night the holy fire is lit in the kundam (Fire pit). The next day devotees offer their prayers to Goddess Masani and walk on the fire in the fire pit which is approximately 50 feet in length.It is believed that when one walks over the fire with utmost devotion and belief the fire does not burn one's feet.

  23. it was such a long time i am trying to write about maasani amman. but today i got great opportunity to do so.
    since from my marriage i had hurdles. recentely my husband lost his job, by certainn reasons. our neighbour advised us to go maasani amman temple as they found their stolen car with in 15days after coming to amman temple.
    so we tried our luck. as soon as my husband did rituals here, with in 20days he got another new with fair amount of salary. immediately we came again here and performed the rituals.
    one more thing i would like to anybody over here can solve my doubt?
    during our second visit we were traveling by car, my husband was driving car, we met with an big accident. i was sitting in front seat with my daughter, behind our ma, and sister and her children. front door and seat i was sitting entirely smashed. but with miracle no one of us unhurted. not even a single scratch. then we were carrying saree and offering to maasani amman. but car was in full speed hit to buffelo. buffelo severed by its leg, cant even stand up. village people gathered and tried pick our car keys, and dont let us to move further. as fault was their , they freed the animal over national high way, as my husband could not control speed, he was in 70km/hr. hit the animal. then i talked to village people and settled the 15000rs to them. as that money was for to reach amman temple and for travel expenses.
    we really felt sad for hurting bufello, how much pain it might have suffered thats y we gave how much they asked i.e., 15k.
    but to courtesy purpose also those village people not even asked about women nd children present in car, whether we are fine or not?
    later car repair nearly came around 80,000rs cost.

    we left pennyless, we dont have debit cards also. we were half the way to temple. my husband asked us return back to our place without seeing amman.luckily he had his credit card for expenses. then i forced him to go by this car only to see amma. even after accident our car traveled about 700kms.
    we performed our pooja and came back. but when ever i imagine that incident, i cant stop worrying.. it became nightmare for me.
    why we met with an accident? why buffelo came our way? how we unhurt? why we lost money?

  25. My experience was different. A few years back I lost my cash of Rs.1 lakh while performing cash duty at my institution. I found the persons who took the excess cash by scrutinizing the records. When I approached them they denying and they were also protected by their employer. I told them if the cash not returned to me, there is no other way except to visit Masani Amman Temple for my grievance and back to my home. My problem was settled within couple of days, and I immediately rush and perform my pooja at the temple with deep respect with thanks. KEEP FAITH AND KEEP ON YOUR PRAYERS IN YOUR MIND TOWARDS MASANIAMMA, SHE WILL HELP EVEN JUST MURMURING HER NAME IN YOUR HEART..!
