ISAKKI AMMAN STORY:-

           Pazhavoor is a hamlet near Muppandhal. A rich woman lived here with her daughter Isakki. The woman was a renowned dancer. Isakki was beautiful. Enchanted by her wealth, a con man sweet talked her into coming to a nearby forest along with money and gold jewellers. Poor Isakki did not know what was in store for her. While she was with him in the forest, the con man killed her using a heavy stone. Soon enough the con man paid for his sins. He was attacked by a snake and he died on the spot. Isakki stood before Lord Shiva and pleaded with him to give life to both her and the con man. Isakki wanted to avenge the murderer herself. Lord Shiva bestowed her the boon. The conman went away to his village. Isakki roamed about in the forest. Using her powers, Isakki converted a small shrub into a beautiful child. Isakki then proceeded to the conman’s village and called the panchayat to seek justice. The conman pretended to not know either Isakki or her daughter. But the child called him, “Father”. The village head announced that a child would not lie and he asked the man and Isakki to sort out the issue and made them sit in a room. Isakki waited patiently till midnight and then she killed the con man. Then she started walking towards the south in a disheveled state. Lord Shiva and his consort Parvati blessed Isakki with divine powers and since then Isakki became a “kaval deivam” [a protecting goddess] for the village. As she decided to stay put in Orappanavilaisaral village, she became OrappanavilaiSaral Isakki Amman.
