Arulmigu Mariamman Temples

Arulmigu Mariamman Temples

Mari also known as Mariamman and Mariaai both meaning "Mother Mari", spelt also Maariamma or simply Amman or Aatha is the South Indian Hindu goddess of rain. She is the main South Indian mother goddess, predominant in the rural areas of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra. Māri is closely associated with the Hindu goddesses Parvati and Durga as well as with her North Indian counterpart Shitaladevi. Goddess Mariamman and Goddess Kali are closely associated with each other. Festivities for her happen during the late summer, early autumn season of "Aadi". Throughout the Tamil Nadu and deccan region, grand festival known as "Aadi Thiruvizha" are taken for Maariamman. Her worship mainly focuses on bringing rains and curing diseases like cholera, smallpox, and chicken pox. She is worshipped in accordance to the local agamas as "Pidari" or the "Grama Devata" usually by non-Brahmin priests or in some cases of big temples like Samayapuram Maariamman temple, also by Brahmin priests. According to shaktha agamas, she is depicted in sitting posture and might be flanked some times by Ganesha and Subramaniya or Ganesha and Naaga on her sides.[citation needed] She is usually taken in procession in a decorated chariot.

Mariamman is an ancient goddess, whose worship probably originated from pre-Vedic[citation needed] mother goddess cult of Dravidian people before the arrival of the Aryans[citation needed] with their Brahmanic religion[citation needed] .This is well attested by the unemployment of Brahmins in officiating the worshipping rituals of the goddess and by the non-Vedic worshipping method that was embraced by her devotees.
