    Pechiamman Temple is dedicated to Goddess Shakti. Situated in the banks of Vaigai river in Madurai, the temple also has separate shrine for Vinayaka, Laadapuratthu Aiyyanar, Irullappa swam and Nagamma. Legend has it that Pechiamman guards the Madurai Meenakshiamman temple. The temple deity is in standing posture with a sword in one hand, and the head of an asura in the other hand. Special pujas are performed on Fridays including milk and coconut water abhishekams and offering of po ngal neivedyam at night. The main festivals are Shivratri and Pongal which are celebrated in the month of Thai (mid January – mid February).
