Sakthi Peetams (Temples)

Sakthi Peetams are local temples devoted to Goddess Adhiparasakthi. Each Sakthi Peetam has a resident statue of Adhiparasakthi which is similar to the original in Melmaruvathur. This is known as the Karuvarai Amma.

Unlike Hindu temples, there are no resident priests in the temple who are in charge of running it. Instead, devotees of the local mandram or mandrams in charge of the Sakthi Peetam take turns administering to all the needs of the temple and the people who visit. This is similar to the way the Siddhar Peetam in Melmaruvathur is administered. Each Sakthi Peetam undertakes numerable charitable activities for people in the local area.

Clicking on each Sakthi Peetam will take you to its web page with information and photos. The information in this section has not been updated for several years and does not represent the actual number and distribution of Sakthi Peetams in India. If you would like to add information on missing Sakthi Peetams please contact
