 URAIYUR - VENKALIAMMAN TEMPLE

Any place of worship-modern or ancient is adorned with a tower-vimana raising atop the garbhagriha and it beckons the devotees to pay homage to it and it is equal to worshipping the adorable deity installed inside. In certain temples the vimana is higher and grandeur than the one on the mahadwaram, as evidenced in the case of Puri Jagannath temple, why the Orissa architectural style gives prominence to the tower raised on the garbhagriha than the one on the Mahadwar. It is a common feature in Dravidian style of temple construction to raise a smaller one called Vimana. But temples without top-ceiling on the garbhagriha evokes wonder. There are only a few of that category and among them the Venkaliamman temple lying near the famous Uraiyur Vaishnava temple stands out prominent. And it is a newly built shrine luring a steady stream of devotees throughout the year. There are several mini-shrines around the garbhagriha installed with many deities and they are worshipped due rituals. Several kins of prayer services are conducted every day. Among the deities, Murugan and Vinayaka command greater attention.

The archamurti made of black granite is quite imposing and owe-some. The facial features and proportions are so artistically made that devotees raise their hands in veneration when come into her sight. The garbhagriha is quite spacious; but without roof, so the statue is exposed to the vagaries of elements throughout the year. Periodical festivals are celebrated with great pomp arid splendour and the daily worship with rituals due.

It is accessible by town bus from either bus stand or railway junction and is only 2 km off both of Trichy town bus stand and railway station.
