    About Temple:
    Karuvalarcheri is near Kumbakonam. It is 1 km from Marudanallur which is 12 km from Kumbakonam on the Kumbakonam – Valangaiman – Mannargudi route.

    Karuvalarcheri is home to one of the most important temples of the Agasthiar Siddha Lineage – the Agasthiar Guru Padhuka Shakti Temple of Mother Sri Akilandeswari and Lord Agastheesvara Shiva.

    Adjacent to this temple is the temple of Lord Sri Lakshmi Narayana, making Karuvalarcheri a wonderful Siva-Vishnu sacred spot.

    Specialty:

    Mother Sri Akilandeswari here is known as Karu Valarkkum Nayagi – the Goddess who blesses the foetus with growth. In other words, the Universal Mother in this temple gives the blessing of development to the foetus.

    Thus this temple complements the famous temple of Garbha Rakshambika which is some miles from here. Mother GarbhaRakshambika is Karu Kaakkum Nayaki – the Goddess who protects the foetus. The Universal Mother in that temple gives the blessing of protection to the foetus. Thus pregnant women get the blessing of growth at one sacred spot and the blessing of protection at the other.

    Meditate on these two specific blessings that these two sacred spots give to expectant mothers. Just thinking about this, one should bow down in gratitude to the Universal Mother’s compassion for us and Her meticulous attention to our varied needs.

    Procedure To Follow:

    It is suyambhu i.e formed by its own.and it is in the form of puttu, so is very powerful.Those who want children go to this temple and clean the steps with ghee and put a kolam and she helps them to form the baby.There is no abhishekam for amman only oil bath.Also this amman only face will be shown to the devotees.We can have the darshan of the full amman only on Sivarathri and Navarathri 9 days.All archana is done only to the moola sri chakra maha meru and sri chakram.Those who cannot go to the temple can take a copy of the picture and pray as it is the moola vigraha with the full amman face and others covered with saree.

    Om sakthi karuvalarcheri akilandeswariyai
