Arulmigu Adaikalam Katha Ayynar and Bathirakali Amman, Madapuram

Before 2300 years back, this place was surrounded by thick thorn forest. During that period, Trimurti along with Goddess Gowri went for hunting. Lord Shiva asked Parvathy not to come along with them. As Parvathy doesn't wished to stay alone, Lord Shiva created a child named "Ayyanar" to accompany her. She requested Lord Shiva to make this place as a holy one and Lord shiva accepted her wish and made this place holy by informing that taking bath in Vaigai river within 3 kms from this place is spiritually equivalent to taking bath in Kasi, the holy water.Goddess Parvathy stayed here as KALI and When a devotee asked a wish to her, she ordered him to provide a horse-shaped shadow for her standing posture. Lifting his two legs, he provided shadow and from that day onwards, Goddess Kali blessed the devotees in this form.There is also an another ancient history for this temple. Once upon a time the city Madurai was surrounded by flood. As Goddess Meenakshi asked to show the boundary of Madurai, Lord Adhikesavan showed the boundary by covering the area with its head and tail and this place was came to known as Padapuram and in later days, it became Madapuram.
