Agaram Serathamman of the herb garden.
Agaram is a village near Thamaraipakkam of Thiruvallur district. Nearby flows the Kosasthali river . When water flows in the river , people spend a lot of time near it , talking fishing etc. Once when people went to the river they saw an idol of the Goddess on the side of the river. She was caught in the slushy mud called Cheru in Tamil. So they called her Cheru athu Amman( The Goddess of the slushy mud near the river). Unlike other temples of Goddesses , these people decided to raise a garden of medicinal herbs around her temple . The people of the village have very great devotion to the Goddess and great respect to the herb garden. Initially this temple was built as a small stone temple by the Chethupakkam Jamin(land lord) . The members of the the Family of Chethupakkam Jamin it seems used to carry water in pots to the temple and daily anoint her. Last year the villagers have built a grand temple to the Goddess..People believe that the herb garden there was planted by one sidhar who lived in the temple long time back. When any one is disturbed or sad , people believe that just a visit to the Herb Garden and the temple would make them contended and happy. They also believe that if unmarried girls with wet dress after bath goes round the temple 11 times , she would get married soon. Similarly barren women would become proud mothers if they go round the temple 21 times. The temple is open from 7am to 12 noon and again between 6 Pm to 8 Pm.
