The Muthalamman temple is located in Akaram, Dindigul and is dedicated to Muthalaman. The Moolavar of this temple is Muthalamman and the Urchavar is Muthalamman holding a parrot. The Thala Virutcham of this temple is a Peepal tree (Arasamaram in Tamil). The temple is 500-1000 years old. A devotee Chakkarayar Aiyar living in north during the Vijayanagara days came to south. He took a little sand from the Shakti temple where he was worshipping. He was advised by Ambica to place the sand at a location suggested by her for his worship. The devotee placed the sand and put a stone on it as deity and worshipped. Later another devotee installed three Ambicas there and built the temple and named the presiding deity Muthalamman. This is the first Shakti temple in the place. Based on the first letter of Tamil language, the place was named Akaram (A). There are shrines for Vinayaka, Balamurugan, and Mahalakshmi.
