Worshiping Goddess on a full moon day

In Full moon  days people residing at Chennai area  used to visit Three Goddesses temple .In the morning they go to  Melur Thiruvudai amman sameda Thirumanangeeswarar temple near by Minjur in Chennai - Ponneri railway route.This is called Itcha Sakthi who gives the will power to start a work desired by an individual.Worshipping in a full moon day that falls on fridays is very auspicious.It is said that people found one cow showering it's milk in a shrub.When they cleared  the shrub,they found a Siva Linga(Swayambu). A temple was built around it.As the place was surrounded by  a forest & felt pleasant smell always,Siva is called Thirumanangeeswarar & his consort as Thiruvudai amman.In  the afternoon  they visit Vadivudai amman temple at Thiruvotriyur.Goddess here  is worshipped as Gnana Sakthi.God is called Thiagarajar.Sundara moorthy nayanar,Saint  Adi Shankara,Vallalar,Pattinathar & Great music composer Sri.Thiagaraja have visited  this temple & praised God & Goddess here.kalia nayanar was born in this  place & attained salvation here.Worshipping  on Fridays here is considered very auspicious.You can always find long que during fridays (Sukravara  sevai).Shiva is called Aadhipureeswarar Swambu linga with bana only & without peeta.It is enclosed in a metallic cover & Opened only during third  monday(somavaram) on  Karthigai Tamil month.Only "punugu" is anointed over Sivalinga.This is kept opened for three days continuously.It is  very tall & huge  in size.You can feel the divine atmosphere when you enter the sanctum.After worshipping here devotees  reach Thirumullaivayil Masisilamani Nadhar temple in the evening.Here Goddess is called "kodiyidai Amman,Kriya Sakthi.Goddess helps  to  obtain   the desired thing  of the devotee.Here it is said that  two demons used to torture saints & people.This was informed to the King Thondaman who ruled then.He came with his army & tried to  capture the demons but in vain.While returning,his  elephant 's leg caught in the bush.The king tried to remove the bush by cutting with his sword.He found  ,blood pouring near the bush which he had cut.He got  down & lifted some plants in the bush,he found  siva linga with  a cut  & bleeding.He immediately tried to cut his neck with his sword as he has committed a great sin by wounding Lord Siva.Immediately he heard a sound form the sky asking the king not to worry & he will shine as a bright gem called Masila mani.Shiva immediately called Nadhiheswarar to help the king to destroy the demons.Nandhigeswarar went with the king & destroyed the demons.So here Nandhigeswarar is looking in the opposite direction.Here special poojas are performed to Nandhigeswarar during Krithigai,full moon day ,new moon day & pradosham.Devotees after worshiping Nandhigeswarar ,wore the garland offered to Him except those  4  special days.This would remove  putra dosham & also solve the delayed marriage problem.
