Elangovai Amman Temple:
History of the Temple :-
Sree Elangovai Amman – Thillaisthanam
Once, Sri Bhagavathi Amman of Kerala wants to have a temple near the Holy river of Cauvery. So, she ordered people through a village shepherd to pack her idol in a palm leaf box and let that into the Holy river of Cauvery. As per the instruction they let the box into the Cauvery, it travelled all the way to the Holy place of Thillaisthanam along with retinue (ie., Malayala Karuppu, Madurai Veeran and others). Mean time a Brahmin couples (pregnant lady and her husband) were crossing the way through Thillaisthanam, they took rest near cauvery because of tiredness. Mean while a voice from heaven (Asareeree) came and instructed to that man to take the palm leaf box from Cauvery river and to place it besides the Alli Kulam (Lilli Pond) near the river, if he do so, his wife will deliver a male baby in a easy manner. As per the instruction he placed the idol near alli kulam (Lilli pond) and he came back to river to take care of his wife, mean while her wife delivered a male child and she said a small girl came and helped her to deliver a baby. Suddenly a young girl gave a dharshan with soolam to that couple and blessed them. Then they established separate Temple with that Statue.From that day The Goddess Elangovai Amman is wary( guardianship) for our entire village(Thillaisthanam).
