The Mangadu Kamakshi Amman Temple in Chennai

This hindu temple beileved to be more than 2000 old .It is built in Chola Architecture and style is dedicated to Goddess Kamakshi and Sri Chakram that symbolizes her .

I have a personal connect with this temple near Kundrathur in Mangadu village from late 60's ,when
it was just a quaint dilapidated temple with one Agraharam .

There was hardly anyone visiting this temple in those days .Only a single kala pooja was being performed .

The compound wall used to have vegetation growing on it . I remember when I was young, my family being ardent followers of Guru Kanchi
Mahaperiava , used to go to this temple on weekends, armed with broom, knife, crowbar and spade to deweed the vegetations, sweep the temple main garbha graham and generally clean the temple , under the supervision of the main gurukkal.

Many in late 60's like my family, started to take cognizance of this temple,only after Kanchi Paramacharya camped in this temple and took great interest in trying to improve this ancient temple .

It was due to his efforts that this temple has now become very popular .

Devotees are suggested to pray for one day chosen by them for six weeks continously for grant of boon by Kamakshi ,for the marriage of their children , prosperity , promotion in their jobs or for bearing of child .

The goddess , it appears has granted their boon , if one were to go by the rise in popularity of this temple , after late 70's , which now sports a Rajagopuram with seven tiers filled great sculptures .There was no Gopuram initially.

Once the temple started earning revenue ,the HRCE of TNadu Govt moved in with an office ,to take management control to run it and improve it in all respects .

A family member of mine named
Mr Sunder, a suptd in HRCE , was appointed as executive officer in later years and he worked hard to raise this temple upkeep and maintenance by leaps and bounds , providing new facilities for public and soon came to be revognised as "Mangadu Sundur"
to many .Later as advised by Kanchi Maha Periava he worked untiringly to improve the livelyhood of many archakas and their families in many temples spread across tamil Nad , by getting their rightful pay and pensions
from the HRCE .

He informs that the first Jewelry and the vasthram for the goddess was gifted by Kanchi Maha periava .

The term Mangadu means "Mango Forests or Mango Grooves" and this temple was built in its midst .

This temple is known as "Tapas Kamakshi" for according to purana it is the place where the goddess performed her penance to re-unite in matrimony with Lord Shiva, performing all 32 types of dharmic rituals .

The sthala purana mentions that, when Lord Shiva and Parvati where in Mount Kailash ,Parvathi playfully closed the eyes of the Lord Shiva and that resulted in the whole universe falling into eternal darkness.

So the Lord ordained Parvathi to perform Tapasya.The Goddess came down to this mangrove in Mangadu and performed penance amidst "Panch agni" or five agni kundams .She stood near the central agni kundam keeping her left leg toe in the fire while keeping her right leg on her left thighs .She kept her left hand on her navel, while holding a japa mala in her right hand over her head.She undertook her deep penance with eyes closed to seek the hand of the lord. Lord Shiva satisfied with her tapas, then instructs her to go to Kanchipuram for concluding their marriage.

Soon after the goddess leaves this Mangadu place, the heat of the agni she created created ,became unbearable for everone living in the vicinity .

Adi Sankarar who installed all the Sankara Madams in India ,seeing the plight of the people in his meditation , visited this Mangadu and installed a "Sri Ardhameru Chakram" at the place where shakthi did her penance, to quench the heat of the Agni and at the same time transform the place to a soothing and sacred one for all to pray.

This Sri Chakra he installed has 43 Thrikonas or triangles and is made up of 8 herbals called Astagandams.
The base is of koorma or tortoise design with 3 steps above .Over this base are 16 lotus petals and again over this there are 8 more petals . The top of this petal base is drawn the Sri Chakra , which is the largest among all in temples across tamil Nad . It is usually clad in 9 yards saree.
Daily poojas are conducted to this "Sri Chakram" in the sanctum Sanctorum of the temple and this Chakra is considered to be a Tantric form of the Goddess herself

"This Ardhameru Sri Chakram" is considered as the supreme divinity of this temple and only sandal or Kumkum archana is performed with no abhishekam as it is made up of herbs.On Vijayadasami day of Navarathiri it is provided with a gold kavacham and on other days it has silver kavachams

The Shrine of "Tapas Kamakshi" in this temple was installed at the behest of Kanchi Paramacharya in addition to existing Sun god .

The devotees to this temple offer worship to four Ambikas or goddess in four forms

- The Sri Chakra mentioned above

- The Adhi kamakshi in panchalokha
holds a parrot in her right hand and
the moon crescent on her head

- Lordess kamakshi doing penance
among the five agni kundams

- The lamp near the Adhi Kamakshi
reverred as Ambhika or lordess

The temple also has a shrine for Ganapati to the left of the main entrance .

I conclude my article, that after doing a pooja on fridays for six weeks ,in this temple in 1976 ,I got my first senior corporate job in Pune .

I have been visiting Mangadu Kamakshi Amman temple since 1979. I go there on a Thursday, when I am in Chennai. Either using a hire car or Ola, it is an easy access and takes around 30 minutes to reach there from Adyar - early in the morning.

it is a beautiful temple arranged in a traditional way - but I believe it gets crowded on special days with separate queues. I usually go there when it is quiet and am able to appreciate the inner sanctum sanctorum and the outer areas (to walk around). I am especially enamored by the Brass metal figurine of Amman standing on one leg and conducting penance. She signifies strength, perseverance and determination to me.

My friend and me had reached this temple around 2 in the afternoon, so we had to wait here because the temple opens at noon after 4 pm. The people there said that the morning is open from 6 a.m. to 12 o'clock, but when we were late, we had to wait till 4:00. After waiting for a few hours, the beauty of this temple has forgotten the watches of waiting. We were happy to receive blessings here, this is a very unique temple.
