At a distance of two Kms from Chidambaram Bus Station and 1.5 Kms from Chidambaram Railway Station, the Thillai Kaliamman temple is located in northern finish of the city. It was constructed by Chola King Kopperunjingan who dominated between 1229 AD and 1278 AD.

As soon as when Shiva and Shakti competed with one another in dancing, Shiva struck a wonderful pose, lifting his leg excessive. Shakti couldn’t match that pose due to modesty, and so misplaced the competition. By the principles of the competition, the loser needed to go away Thillai and reside exterior. So Shakti moved to a location on the fringe of the kshetra and a Kali Temple got here up there. Thillai Kali is credited with healing powers and showers well being and prosperity on those that worship her. The black Goddess Kali has a diamond on her brow.

Annual Festivals are celebrated within the month of Vaigasi and Navarathiri competition is widely known within the month of Purattasi.

Timings: 6 AM – 12:30 PM & 4:30 PM – 8:30 PM.
