This Pongal (Tamil new year) I happened to visit my friend’s native place Pollachi. This blog is about some of the amazing places I covered in and around Pollachi during my stay. We started from Bangalore on the night train to Coimbatore. Early morning we reached Coimbatore and took the bus to Pollachi. Pollachi is a town around 40 km from Coimbatore and is known for its pleasant climate and natural beauty. Since my visit was during festival time, a significant amount of time was spent at home but here are the places I managed to see throughout my period of stay.
Masani Amman Temple
Arulmigu Masani Amman Temple has a unique idol of Goddess Arulmigu Masani Amman (also known as Goddess of Justice) in lying posture. The legend behind the temple is quite interesting and it is believed that the goddess offers justice to the deities who strongly believe her. The temple is known for its stone of justice where believers in trouble grind red chillies and apply to the stone believing they will be getting justice by doing the same. Listening to the story of the deity was indeed amusing.
