Coronavirus Is Now A Goddess, Temple For 'Corona Devi' Set Up In Tamil Nadu
A temple for ‘Corona Devi’ has been built on the outskirts of Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu due to the scary second wave of the pandemic. The temple has been built by a mutt, the Kamatchipuri Adheenam. This is similar to the ‘Plague Mariamman Temple’. It is dedicated by the faithful to the deity Amman seeking her protection when the plague struck the district about 150 years ago.

The idol, named ‘Corona Devi’ has also been placed in the temple. It is a 1.5-foot tall black stone idol that has been consecrated at the temple in the mutt area. Prayers are being held daily.
It is not the first time such a temple has come up. Over a century ago when the plague spread across Coimbatore killing many people more than a century ago, an idol of Mariamman was put up and people had started offering prayers. The place had turned into a temple and came to be known as “Plague Mariamman Temple”.

Only priests and mutt officials are allowed inside the ‘Corona Devi’ keeping in mind the precautions for everybody’s safety. COVID-19 guidelines like maintaining social distance are obeyed here. The temple is not open to the public. A Mahayagam or special yajna will be organized on the last day of prayers.
