900 YEARS OLD SUNDARA KAMAKSHI TEMPLE AT SIRUKARUMBUR on the Madras - Bangalore road, just after crossing a small town called Ocheri, you find a board pointing to the left , with the name - Sirukarumbur.
Unlike the Devi Kamakshis in many other Temples, the Devi here is not seated but is in a standing position. She is a beauty as Her name suggests. The Linga is Swayambhu. The Devi Temple stands close to the Easwara Temple and is made of green stone. The Priest after telling us about how Devi's grace blesses couples with children, showed us this piece of sculptured - stone , fallen from the roof of Devi's Sanctum- a baby inside the womb.
