Temple Of Locks: Locks ‘Big Mouths’
Devotees, whose prayers are fulfilled return to unlock them. They also sacrifice sheep or chicken and prepare meal in the temple premises itself. Some also offer the livestock to the temple. At a corner in the temple area, hundreds of unlocked locks are there in a small concrete pot dropped by people who’s prayers got fulfilled. “Many are unable to locate their locks. So they just drop the keys instead. Some come back in a few weeks. Some take time” Arjun added.
There is literally no space for locks in the temple now. Over the years worshippers have put up locks just anywhere including on ropes tied around trees in the temple. If you visit Salem this is a fascinating place to stop by. The temple is on the Yercaud Road, on the right soon after you turn right into Ayyanthirumaligai Road.
