Goddess Ambal or Mariamman is a Tamil folk Goddess and highly respectable in Tamil rural areas. Goddess Ambal or Shakti or Devi is largely worshipped by the Hindus in different forms. They are regarded as “Mothers”. Worshipping her is interesting. During the festivities, she is offered special food cooked in earthen pots. Nose piercing and fire walking are performed as a symbol to devotion. There are fascinating tales regarding Goddess Ambal.

It is said that once Draupadi needed an incarnation of Goddess Kali, but this was not known to pandavas. When Pandavas fall asleep at night then Draupadi visited villages as Maha Kali. This is how Goddess Ambal became famous in the rural areas. Another story goes like this…Mariamman caught smallpox. She used to roam houses for food, and kept herself fanning with the neem leaves. She recovered and people worshipped her as a Goddess of Smallpox.
