Legends

The goddess Parvathi, wife of Lord Shiva, closed his eyes from behind playfully. Immediately the entire universe was covered in darkness. The goddess Parvathi got a curse due to this and had to born on earth as Kamakshi. Goddess Kamakshi was praying under a mango tree with a Shiva lingam made of sand to marry Lord Shiva. At that moment, Lord Shiva incarnated as Kamba river with high tides to test Kamakshi. Kamakshi grasped the idol closely with her two hands and prevented it from getting eroded in the tides. She also performed Pooja by sitting in a needle tip surrounded by “Panchakagni” (surrounded by 5 fires) to free herself from the interest of livelihood. The Lord Shiva became happy, gestured before her and married her. When the goddess was performing penance, her fury was felt well beyond the Champaka grove affecting the villagers outside. The saint Dhurvasa requested her to become peaceful.

Accordingly to another legend, a demon named Bhandakasur was troubling the Devas. Devas came to Kanchipuram and took the form of parrots. They were living in Champaka tree and were praying to Kamakshi Amman. Kamakshi killed the demons and saved the devas.
