 The Putthu Temple

The Putthu (sacred anthill) is considered holy throughout India. Since ancient times, the putthu has been identified with the village goddess and is regarded as a ‘divine witness’ to all happenings. Traditionally, temples are constructed close to sacred anthills. When Amma left home at 16 years of age, Amma moved into a house that stood by this very putthu and offered pooja daily. Sri Narayani Peedam was built around this sacred anthill in the following years. Today, a constant flow of people come to offer their prayers, aarthi, and offerings of devotion.
