The new temple has a large snake mound ideally located in the middle of the temple. In the mound is a pair of beautiful cobras. The snakes are mostly nocturnal and hardly come out when there are gatherings of devotees. Also there is a white cobra that stands guard at this temple. There was an incident whereby a group of men attempted robbing this temple. As they entered the temple, the white cobra stood guard in front of the inner sanctum and hissed angrily. The trespassers fled for their lives, and subsequently could not bodily function appropriately. The wife’s of these afflicted men went to the temple and begged for the forgiveness of Goddess Nageswary Amman. The men immediately recovered, and now faithfully pray at this powerful temple.
This temple is renowned for the ‘puja’ to overcome ‘naga dosham’ (snake curse). Also those undergoing ‘Rahu’ or ‘Kethu’ in their astrological chart participate in this ‘puja’. Devotees come for either the Tuesday or Friday evening 'puja' continuously for 27 weeks. The main ceremony at this temple falls in the month of ‘Adi’, whereby a fire-walking congregation takes place on ‘Adi Puram’. Devotees have to fast for 48 days prior to participating in this spiritually charged festival.
