    Temple for Childless couples - Lord Muruga at Chennimalai

    Lord Muruga is considered the bestower of boons for childless couples.

    One among the many temples for Him in the South of India where people throng in their hundreds for fulfilling their various wishes, including blessings for a child is the Chennimalai Muruga temple in Kongu naadu in South India.

    Chennimalai has easy access from Erode, where we live and Coimbatore. It is about 26 kilometers away from Erode and one can go to the temple by car or by town buses that are available in plenty.

    The temple lies about 7 kilometers south of Ingoor which has the nearest railway station. Chennimalai belongs to Perundurai in Erode district and the main town of Perundurai lies about 3 kilometers from Chennimalai. There are devasthanom buses that we can board to the temple and from it. The buses wait at the temple while the devotees pray to the Lord and then transport them to the main bus stop or railway station.

    It is best to buy Archana plates at the bottom of the hill itself, for there is no archana shop at the top. There is only two shops selling Prasad, cassettes, books and gift articles

    And then begin our pleasant climb up the hill with many sharp u-turns or hairpin bends that wind up and up the hill. The town of Chennimalai grows smaller and smaller as we climb up, though the hill is not so tall, being only 600 meters above sea level. The air turns fragrant and the greenery lush and cool as we climb up. The hill we learnt later abounds with rare medicinal plants and herbs and even breathing the air here is said to cure many ills.

    The temple for Lord Muruga or 'Kurinjhi Andavar' has been praised in the sacred hymns of Kundrathoradal. The hill of Chennimalai in the holy Devangiri script is called 'Siragiri'or 'Sigaragiri', 'Chenniyangiri' and 'Pushapagiri.' The hill rests on the banks of the Noyal river, which was also called Kanchima nadhi or river Kanchimai.

    The temple is being renovated and there are many sculptors sitting along the way chiseling out blocks of stone and cement. We park the car at the space allotted to it and then walk up the temple pathway to the sanctum sanctorum of Lord Muruga.

    After offering prayers devotees circumambulate the main shrine to climb the 50 or less steps at the back to the shrines of Valli and Deivayani, who are called 'Amirthavalli' and 'Sundaravalli.' The walk up the steps is very pleasant, as we can see the hill path sloping down to the left as we go up. There are many bushes and wild trees and the air blows very breezy and invigorating.

    Devotees throng to the temple with many believes that are special to the Lord of Chennimalai. People who do pradakshina of the God are said to be relieved of the ill effects of Sevvai dosha.

    Childless couples come to the temple after New Moon to observe Sasthi Vratta, and there are many instances where the couples who prayed here for a child, returned with a baby in their arms to thank the Lord.

    Balan Devaraya Swamigal composed his first Skanda Sasthi Kavasam here. It is one of the holiest and most renowned slokas for Lord Muruga and devotees believe that chanting the prayer in this temple will keep them healthy and free of evils.

    Devotees also believe that no task however important can be undertaken by them without Chennimalai Muruga's permission. People who plan to build a house or fix an alliance for their child offer an archana to the Lord and pray at a special Sirasappu Utharavu Kettal (asking for orders). If the utharavu (order) is positive, they go ahead with their plans. If it turns negative, they drop their plans.

    On the southern side of the hill is a spring that gets active only once in twelve years especially during drought. The Ganesh who sits near the spring is called 'Mamanga Theertha (water once in twelve years) Vinayaka.' People pray to this Vinayaga for fertility in their farms.

    The temple was built by Saravana Munivar, whose tomb is found at the top of the hill. It is not known when the temple was built but by records, a minister of the Mysore Devaraja Udaiyar Dynasty donated money for external construction of the temple in 1654. So, surely the temple must be older than that.

    People who prays for progeny should devote them to their Kula Deivam. Kula deiva prayers are so much powerful.

    Mannarshala snake temple for childless couples

    Mannarshala covers an area of 16 acres of dense green forest grove devoted to serpent worship. The temple here is unique in that the holy rites are presided over by a priestess. The grove is dotted with the granite idols of serpents. There are 2 main idols: 'Nagaraja' or the serpent king and his consort, Sarpayakshini.

    The priestess lives in the 'Illam' on the north side of the temple. 'Uruli Kamazhthal' or the placing of a bell metal vessel upside down in front of the deity is the most popular offering believed to restore fertility to childless couples. Mannarshala temple at Harippad is reputed for having 30,000 images of snake-gods and this is the largest of its kind in the state.

    On the day of 'Ayilliam' asterism in the Malayalam months of Kanni and Thulam (September and October), all the serpent idols in the grove and the temple are taken in procession to illam ( the house connected with the temple) where 'Nurum Palum' (rice flour and milk), 'Kuruthi' (a red liquid made of turmeric and lime), offerings are made.

    The procession is conducted with great pomp and gaiety in which the oldest female member of the family carries the Nagaraja idol. During the festival days, thousands throng the temple to worship the hooded gods.

    The offerings include coins and snake effigies made of gold, silver and copper, grains of all kinds, pepper, tender coconuts, plantains, melons and sandalwood.

    Significance : The Largest Snake Temple in Kerala

    Location : 32 Kms South Of Alappuzha, Kerala
