Goddess Mother Parvathi the wife of Lord Shiva took birt on her as hive. The purpose of the birth is to clear Lord Shiva from certain sin and give blessings to all people in kaliyug. The birth took place her before the start of kaliyug. The birth place melmaliyanoor where the temple is situated. The specialty in this temple is Mother in Angala amman faces north while blessing devotees.

The great dazzling brightest light is mother Sri Angalaparameshwari was ruling the world even before inhabition started.

Mother parvathy only created Brahma, Vishnu, Rudra, Maheswaran and Sadhasivan for creation, Maintenance, distination, hiding and blessing.

Lord Shiva, Vishnu and Brahma are supported to be three hands of Gods. All of sorts of energies were differentiated mainly as three types, Wish, action and Wisdom. Right Side is taken as Male and left as Female. When both sides confine together resulted in creation of Sky, Water, Fire Wind and Earth. Siva, Vishnu and Brahma were teamed with Eswari, Lakshmi and Sarswathi.

Brahma, the God for creation had 10 assistants to help in his activities. Thakkan the important assitant crores of livings including saints. He also created 60 extremely beautiful girls and married them to Godmen. In this process Eswari’s creator, He created Dhakshayani and married here to Lord Shiva.

When Takkan went to kailash, He was stopped bygod one of Shiva’s deputies. Angered by this takkan performs difficult yagams with selfish maotives. He did not invite Lord shrine. Dhakshyani went to yaga in sprite of Lors Shiva’s unwillingness. She accused thakkan for inviting Lord Shiva. But she was only insulted completely dissatisfied, Dhakshayani saw yaga was destroyed.

Dhakshayani destroyed her own body. Lord Shiva took her body and devised with uncontrollable anger (Rudhrathandavam). During this, the right hand of Dhakshayani fell in Dhandakarunyam. Malayanoor is a part of Dhandakarunyam.

Aroop (shapeless) Angalaamman to join with Lord Shiva took Birth as Parvathi, the Daughter of parvatharajan. She married Lord Shiva.

With power of manthras and boons from Lord Shiva, Brahama performed a yaga to save god men from two demons known as SANDOBI and SUNDARAR. Thro this yaga thilothama as apsaras came to life.

Attracted by the beauty of thilothama not only demons but brahma also followed her. For her protection She went to kailash where Brahma also followed. As Brahma also was with five heads, Parvathi mistook him for Shiva and felt at his feet. when Parvathi realized the truth, she was very angry and prayed Shiva that fifth head of Brahma should be destroyed. As Suggested by Lord Vishnu, Shiva fought with Brahma and cut his fifth head. But Brahma was compensated with new head. Shiva cut Brahma’s head nine hundreds and ninety nine times and got tired.

He made all the nine hundreds and ninety nine heads into garland and wore it. Then again he cut Brahma’s head and confirmed with four heads only.

Shiva was affected by sin due to this. Devi Saraswathi, wife of Brahma cursed Shiva to have no food, no sleep, and his hunger to be quenched with as and thirst to be quenched with bone only. After this Shiva was roaming all over the world.

Saraswathi cures parvathi to become ugly, parts of crane and peacock are to become her dress, her assistants to become demons.

On knowing this status, Lord Vishnu apprises Parvathi that her ordeal will come to an end when she becomes snake in melmalaiyanoor.

Deve parvathi roams all over the world. She meets sage Kapil in Thiruvannamalai and takes bath in Brahmatheertham. She gets relieved from Sarswathi’s curse.

From Thiruvanamali, Devi Parvathi comes to Thazhanur Where she stays over night. On the way to malaiyanoor. She creates big lake (ponneri). Her ring is lost in the nearby fields. She curse the lake will not have any fields thereafter. These in true till date.

On the way she felt thirsty. But people there did not oblige her with water. So she curse that are will never have palm trees.

Dasan with 3 sons (Veeran, sooran, Ukiran) went for fishing in malaiyanoor lake. Parvathi suggested to them that catch should be devoted to her only Veeran wanted to oblige. But he was sorry for having damaged net.

Angala Amman gave three stones to veeran. The first when thrown in to lake it will make the net all right, second stone will result in catching fishes which is to be devoted to mother. Third stone will result in large catch which can be used for sale. Veeran obeyed the commands.

Then Angalamman created a snake hive in palace garden and set there as five headed snake. Fisherman Dasan unsuccessfully tried to doze the hive. Third day Angalamman gave Darshan to all four fishermen.She commanded the fishermen, Due to Saraswathi’s curse i am here. Daily you do Pooja to me . I will save you and your future generations. Accordingly fishermen performs pooja even now.

King of the place Malai Arasan came to gardens and saw the snake hive temples. He got angry with Dasan’s family. he sent a great force to destroy the snake hive. Mother made everything invisible and geve dharshan to the king, Who donated twelve kanni lands for building the temple.

People took sand from snake hive as prasad and got relief from diseases. Lord Shiva crosses river sangraparani and reaches Melmalaiyanoor. In cremation ground consumes three handful of ash and gets some relief from hunger. Then he asks for food in front of the temple. On hearing Shivas voice Parvathi feels happy and thinks of her brother Vishnu who appraises the procedure for relief from curse.

That Moment she had consultation with Lord Vishnu. He advised her that Tasty food is to be prepared in three parts. the fist two parts are to be given to Kabalam, Third part is dropped in the floor as if by mistake, then when Kabalam comes down to taste the food parvathi should take giant shape and squeeze it. Then the curse will be released. To cook the food she should take the help of lakshmi and Amudha Surabi.

Parvathi Prepared food accordingly. She orders Lord Ganesh to take care of his father till the lunch is over. Ganesh obeyed his mother’s word. Parvathi performed pooja to the feet of Lord Shiva and served lunch as suggested by Vishnu. When Kabalam come down to eat the third part of food, Parvathi took giant shape of Angala Prameshwari and crushed it with right foot and made it as her servant.

As Shiva was released from curse he felt happy and went to Chidambaram for Dancing happily. He got the name of Dhandeswarar and Parvathi as Dhandeswari.

The Angalaparameshwari was taken in procession in car to subside her anger. Angels, sages and saints became wheels, Wheel latch and throne of the car. Angalamman came to normal and under took procession in normal shape. So Angala amman bless her devotees by staying in melmalaiyanoor.
