 General Information:
     
 

In olden days, the place was known as Panchakshapuram as the five Boodhas worshipped Lord Shiva with idols made of five metals.

As some blind people also worshipped here, the place was also called Kurudarseri (Kurudar-blind).  Later the name changed as Koradacheri. There is a Kalasa in the sanctum sanctorum in the north.  The mandap is spacious to facilitate darshan for 500 people.  Idols of Danalakshmi, Dhanya Lakshmi, Gaja Lakshmi, Santhana Lakshmi, Aadhi Lakshmi, Veera Lakshmi, Ishwary Lakshmi and Vijayalashmi represent the Sculptural skill of the artists of Tamilnadu.  They are made with minute care. Lords Vinayaka, Muruga with His consorts Valli and Deivanai in separate shrines are on the right side of the entrance.  On the left of the entrance are Lord Ayyappa and Saint Ragavendrar.  The Shivlinga found in the fields, Saptha Kannikas and Nagars are under the holy tree.  Mothers Durga, Kamakshi, Dakshayini and Lord Vinayaka adore the walls of the sanctum sanctorum.  Sri Anjaneya is opposite the Tulasi Madam behind the temple.  Mother Karumari Amman is facing east.  The temple with its 6 kalasas is said to be 500 years old.  The last consecration was performed in September 2013.

 Greatness Of Temple:
     
 

Mariamman Kula Devatha worship was in vogue even before the Chola period.  It was the practice of the people to send water and neem leaves (Veppilai in Tamil) to those suffering from small pox.

 
     
  Temple History:
     
 

The temple came into being with the efforts of an affluent devotee.  The temple is north of the Kalluli Mariamman temple where a king worshipped before invading north. The temple is surrounded by water bodies on three sides.  Mother Kalikambal appeared in the dream of an affluent man and asked him to build a temple so that She would be spared from rain and sun.  She also promised to be the custodian deity of the place.  Thus the temple began to grow in a shed and reached the present status as the temple of the village.
