About Temple

Arushumud Durga Temple is an important temple located on the Tamil Nadu Kerala border in South India. Located in Palugal, Kanyakumari district, the Goddess Durga of this temple is popularly known as Arashumuttamma.
Durga is the roudrabhava of Goddess Adhiparashakthi. It is the form taken by the goddess to kill the evil nocturnal beings Mahishasura, Raktabijan, Dhumralochana, Chandamundas and Shumbhanishumbhas. Goddess Durga Durga is the embodiment of wisdom, wealth and power. Therefore, Goddess Durga is worshiped as Lakshmi, Saraswathi and Parvathi during Navrathri.
It is a truth that is attested in the light of the experience of many that Goddess Durga, who resides in Arashumut as an extremely powerful goddess, is the goddess who comes to the call when called.
Mithunamasam Makam Nakshathra, the anniversary of the re-consecration, is celebrated as the festival of Arashumuttamma. On that day Mangal Abhishekam and Kalashabhishekam are specially performed along with Poojas. Participating in the birthday feast of the Goddess on this day is highly meritorious.
Sarat Navrathri is the main festival of Arashumuttamma. Beginning on the first day after the black moon of the maiden month, this 10-day long festival celebrates Arashumu Amma in the 9 forms of Goddess Durga along with various artistic performances
Along with the forms of Shailaputri, Brahmacharini, Chandraghanda Devi, Kushmanda Devi, Skandamata, Katyayani, Kalaratri and Mahagauri Siddhidhatri, the Goddess is seen as Saraswathi on the tenth day.
Along with Nithya Pooja, Aishwarya Puja is performed on the first Sunday of every month, Ganapati Homa on Makam day and especially Durga Puja on Ayilyam day. On Sundays, devotees light Durga lamp and Yakshiamma lamp for Abhishtha Siddhi. Beginning with dedication and ending with 21 pradakshina with 21 lamps in the twenty-first week).
On Tuesdays, pujas for Rahu Preethi and Rahu Dosha Nivaranam can be performed and lemon lamp vows can be offered.
Mangalyasooktharchana and Kunkumarchana are there to remove marriage obstacles and Mangalya Bhagya. The main offering here is the offering of a ‘cradle and pillai’ to the fairy mother for the birth of a child. Also Tulabharam, Kunjunu and marriage are also performed.
In the past, the Brahmins who lived in this area worshiped Goddess Durga under the Arayal tree. The people who migrated here later worshiped the goddess as Kali. A new temple was constructed according to the deva prasnavidhi that took place over time and Goddess Durga was enshrined inside the temple in the form of Chaturbahu in the form of a lion. Ganesha, Yakshiamma, Nagar family and Manthramoorthy are the sub deities. As the spirit of the goddess increased, the Arash tree began to grow here again like before. Yakshiamma, who resides here in a gentle form with Abhayavarada mudras, has been given as much importance as Goddess Durga in the main temple. The deity Balabhadra and Subrahmanya are present in this temple, but the construction of the temple has not been possible due to space limitations and financial constraints.
On the Nagarkovil - Thiruvananthapuram National Highway, 4 km from Kaliyikavila on Moovotukonam road, it is located near the Malayadi in an area called Enchavilakonam.
