Vakrakaliamman Temple Thiruvakkarai

The Demon Vakrasuran had been killed by an avatar of Lord Vishnu, Varadaraja Perumal. Vakrasuran’s sister Demoness Tunmuki was destroyed by the Goddess Vakrakaliamman. During the annihilation, the Demoness Tunmuki was pregnant and killing a child is not allowed in Dharma Shastra. Hence, the Goddess Vakrakaliamman held fetus in Tunmuki’s womb as a kundalini in her right ear and destroyed her. As the Goddess annihilated the Demon Vakrasuran’s sister Tunmuki, she raised there as Thiruvakkarai Vakrakaliamman.

Even after the annihilation, the Goddess was in anger. Adi Shankara came and calmed Kali. He consecrated the Sri Chakra on her left foot. As the Goddess Vakrakaliamman is the Goddess of the Navagrahas Rahu and Kedhu, this place is meant for Vakra Shanthi. People should come in orbit around the God like 5 times from the right side and 4 times from the left.
