Masani Amman is an avatar (manifestation) of Shakti Devi. She also known as Masani Devi among north Indians. Her temple is located in Anaimalai, Pollachi, Coimbatore. Arulmigu Masani Amman Temple, also referred as Anaimalai Masani Amman Temple, is a highly revered shrine situated at Anaimalai, which is located about 24 km far south-westerly to Pollachi. It is situated at the confluence of Aliyar River and the Uppar stream, nestled amid grasslands against the backdrop of mighty Anaimalai Hills. The Temple enshrines Goddess Arulmigu Masani Amman as the presiding deity. The deity is seen in a lying posture measuring 15 feet from head to foot, which is unique. 

Other deities worshiped in the complex include Neethi Kal (stone of justice) and Maha Muniappan. It is a popular belief here that Masani Amman will cure any illness if you go around her trident. During ancient times, Anaimalai was known as Nannur and the region was ruled by Nannuran. He had proclaimed severe punishments on those who plucked fruits from the dense mango grove that belonged to him. One day, a lady happened to consume a fruit not knowing of the strict measures. Nannuran sentences her to death despite the plea of the general public. Later, Nannur was killed by the villagers in a battle near Vijayamangalam, and a shrine was erected to worship the lady who sacrificed her life. Since the lady was killed, the deity was called as Shmeisani, which in Sanskrit means ‘graveyard’. Later, the deity came to be called as Masani. Legend has it that when Lord Rama had set out to search for Sita, Rama had stayed in a graveyard at Anaimalai. Before leaving for Sri Lanka, Lord Rama created an idol of the goddess to worship, using clay. As a ‘vardaan’, Masaniamman blessed Lord Rama on his triumph over evil and winning his devoted wife back. The goddess was lying on her back in the graveyard, thus the reason why the image is placed this way.
