Arulmigu Mullai Vana Nathar Temple, Thirukarukavur

Arulmigu Mullai Vana Nathar Temple is widely known as Garbarakshambigai Temple. Situated on the banks of the river Vettar, a branch of the Cauvery, this temple is acclaimed to fulfil the wishes of couples expecting children. The presiding deity Goddess Parvati is believed to vouchsafe safety to women during pregnancy and childbirth.

There is also a shrine dedicated to Lord Shiva, known by the name of Mullai Vana Nathar which means Lord of the Jasmine Forest. The temple is fairly big, occupying an area of more than an acre. The entrance looks grand with the beautiful Gopuram and the tank in front of it.

There are also inscriptions on the compound walls of the temple that tell the story of Sage Nirdhura and his wife Vedhika. The story goes that Goddess Parvati offered protection to Vedhika and erased the curse of sage Urdhvapada.

Devotees from all over India come to this temple to offer prayers. The temple remains crowded especially on weekends.
