Sri Chellandiamman Temple, Urayur 

The temple is situated on the southern bank of the confluence of the rivers Cauvery and Kudamurutti. Pujas are performed to Ambica on poornima days-full moon days evening with cereals and rice cooked without salt as nivedhana. This is given as Prasad to devotees. They consume it hoping that they would be blessed with a child. There are separate shrines for guardian deities Karuppanasami and Madurai Veeran. Lord Valampuri Vinayaka is under the Arasu (peepal tree) tree gracing the devotees.

Women concerned with the health and welfare of children and facing problems in wedding talks pray to Ambica on poornima days.
