🛕 Devi Thirumani Amman Temple is a Hindu Temple dedicated to Goddess Sakthi Murugan located at Anna Nagar, well-known locality of Chennai City in Tamil Nadu. The Temple is situated on the 13th Main Road, Anna Nagar, Chennai. The temple is situated on the North-Western Corner of the junction of the Second Avenue and the 13th Main Road.
🛕 This idol was the only worshipping site with a roof in Anna Nagar when the Anna Nagar Layout was first formed as the ‘West Madras Neighborhood’. Although, the adjoining lands belonged to the presiding deity, the idol was in a small temple constructed out of lime mortar and bricks, over a mud mound of 5 feet height. The temple was actually on a village road connecting the New Avadi Road and Poonamallee High Road passing through ‘Thirumangalam’ as the area was known. The temple and the village road even figured in the Survey of India Map of the 19th century. After the Layout was implemented, it became clear that the temple has to be relocated or there will be a hindrance to the free flow of traffic in the road and the disciples cannot have a good darshan of the Goddess.
🛕 The Temple premises remains open on all days from 6.00 AM to 10.30 PM and 5.30 PM to 8.30 PM. On Fridays it is kept open upto 9.00 PM. On Tuesdays and Fridays, the temple is kept open for performing Rahukala Pooja by the devotees between 3.00PM and 4.30 PM on Tuesdays and 10.30 AM and 12.00 noon on Fridays.
