Vekkali Amman Temple

The temple is unique in that the shrine of the presiding deity has no roof. Legend has it that Goddess Vekkaliamman saved the people of Trichy from sand storm and torrential rain, and told her devotees to not build a roof over her shrine until every person living there had shelter. Daily pujas are performed here, while special pujas are done on Tuesdays and Fridays when devotees from across the city throng the shrine.
