Muthu pillai Palayam Naga Muthu Mariyamman
This place is near Pondichery town, You have to travel 2 km from the Pondichery bus stand on the Vilayannur road to reach this temple. It seems once upon a time a farmer was growing ash gourd in his fields which were in the place where the temple stands. One day , one well grown ash gourd plant stood up in the form of a hooded serpent. That farmer called all the villagers to see this greatmiraculous happening.,. Then the goddess entered one lady who had come there and she it seems told, “I am Nagamuthu Mariamman. I can be seen in this field with this form for 45 more days.If you build a temple for me here, I would see that this village remains always prosperous.”
As per her wish the local people built a temple for her in that spot. And that goddess is fulfilling the requests of all her devotees from there.
