Shakthi(Goddesses) worship: Angala parameswari amman, melmalayanur in tamilnadu. shakthi worship is very popular among the rural people of tamilnadu. Angalamman, kaliamman, mariamman are the major deities worship existed in Tamilnadu throug the ages. They were all ferocious and human sacrifices to them were common. The new Saivam began to refine this and the Sakthi cult was born. Goddess with benign and beautiful looks came to be regarded as Sakthi, the consort of Siva. Formerly, the dancing Lord was conceived to be having his wife in the left half of his body. Hence she was not separately worshipped. Now stone sculpting had become popular and separate shrines with stone images of Sakthi came to be erected within Siva temples. Some temples of the former ferocious goddesses were converted into Sakthi temples and Lingam was also erected in them. Every friday at 6PM in the evening the famous temple music called pambai is being played before the goddess.
