Temple History :

Ammachiveedu Moorthy temple is a Hindu temple located at Kollam in the Kollam district of Kerala, India. This is the ancient temple where the origin of the Temple can not be traced through records. But it is founded some six hundred years ago for the spiritual benefit of Ammachi Veedu family, an ancient aristocratic family in Quilon (Kollam). On the basis of a marriage ceremony, Lord Dharma Sastha with pleasure entrusted the Diety to one of the Karanavans, who is now worshiped in the Temple as ‘Brahma Rakshas’, on the right-hand side of the Diety. Since the Diety has the position of a Guru, the members of the Tarawad is prohibited from entering the premises of Shasthamkotta Temple. But on all auspicious occasions poojas have to be performed there, and get the blessings of Dharmasastha. The most important aspect is that the ‘Garbhagrah’ of this temple is only 4 x 4 x 6 width, breadth, and height. There is a Peedam over which the deity is installed. Two ‘Conches’ are placed over the Peedam and recently the Peedam is covered by a silver plate and the two conches are placed in golden covers.

The annual festival falls on Dhanu of every year but it is to be done after the Mandala Pooja is over. This fact gives ample proof that the deity has some relation with Dharmasastha and the members can not go on pilgrimage to Sabarimala temple. 10 days festival is conducted in the temple without any financial support from the public. No donation is solicited for the purpose. On the 10th day, the Karanavan conducts the pooja in the Kalam specially prepared for the purpose and boiled Ninam is offered to the deity. This is the rarest phenomena available in the temple. The deity is worshiped by the name Moorthy Amma, which, denotes the absence of an idol. The desires of the people will be materialized in all sense by the Mother. There is a Sree Chakra installed in the temple on the left side of the Diety. This Amma can be worshiped in any form, it is on the basis of the mental desire of the worshippers.
