Once upon a time in  Vellore  , the area starting from   the northern part  of  Andhara Pradesh to the  Sholingur , where   a river named Deva river(ponnai river)   flows became very dry without any rain..All the fields and forest had a burnt look,Then the people of that area  prayed their goddess Kanaka  Nachiar .That night the goddess  took the form of a young woman, and sitting on the river shore, she saw the river and sky. Torrential   rain started and there  was a huge flood in the river.The people got scared.At that time the Goddess  sat on a leaf floating  on the river and  lead the river..In the middle there was a rock preventing the water flow. She melted the rock and created a  huge hole there  and divided the river in to three  branches anlead the river and made it join the Pampai river at Kanchipuram..

When she was returning one  Rakshasa  started  following her with a view to trouble her.She took him to a top of a hill and made a  hole on its top  and buried  him there. Unfortunately the goddess  also started  getting drowned  and her steed pulled her up  and what we see is only her face.This temple is in Andhra  border(in Chithur district)  and is called Kangunth.Some people do call her as Kaanaka  (forest) nachiar.

Through out the year  pilgrims visit this temple,On tuedays and Fridays and on full moon and no moon  days, Very large number of people do come .The eighteenth day of aadi month is celebrated   as a  great festival..On that day people worship Pithrus at this temple,Devotees believe that  if they pray the Goddess for Children, they would be definitely blessed.

The goddess  gives what  is asked by devotees   within 18 days.and so the crowd  keeps on increasing.This temple is the border of Tamil Nadu  vellore and Andhra Kuppam,. The tedmple  is on the banks  of Palar river in Perumpallam villge. Buses are available from Vaniambadi and Thiruppathur(  near Jolarpet Junction.)
