This temple is located outside the Mysore palace fort facing the road dedicated to Mariamma or Parvathi in a more aggressive form. She is the guardian of people from all diseases. People after they are cured of diseases like chicken pox or measles visit the temple and offer tender coconut water on the stone installed in the shrine representing Mariamma. This ritual is known as "thannir yereyuvudu" / pouring tender coconut to cool down the goddess.
