Andipatti Meenakshi Amman Temple
This is an ancient temple belonging to the Pandya period. The antiquity of the temple is as ancient as that of Madurai Meenakshi temple. Many Siddhas lived here. Those seeking mental peace choose this temple for meditation and yoga practices. One of the Siddhas in the guise of beggars here was Sivanandi Siddha. He did many miracles here. His tomb is here on which stands the holy tree the Vilwa.
Sun and Moon grace together in the temple. Hence, people perform the Amavasya tarpan daily in the temple. Those seeking child boon pray to Santhana Vinayaka in the temple. Those trapped in litigations, light lamps for favourable results. Those suffering from indigestion or other stomach problems offer pure rice to the Lord and take it as food.
The wedding festival is celebrated in the temple the same time when Meenakshi Kalyanam is celebrated in Chithirai (April-May) in Madurai temple. Skanda Sashti in October-November and Tirukarthikai in November-December are other important festivals in the temple.
