Sthala Puranam from Agasthya Vijayam
Kathayi Amman is the local name for Katyayani Devi who is one of the nine forms of Durga Devi. In one Kalpa Kala/period, Pournamasi devi, the Chief Guide of Gopikas of Brindavan has prayed to Katyayani/Kathayi devi here for blessings.

One may note that during Margazhi/Margasheersha month, Radha Devi along Gopikas of Brindavan  woke up early in the Morning, took bath in Yamuna river and worshipped 'Katyayani' devi in order to marry Krishna as their Husband. The Sloka below was the Gopikas prayer to Katyayani Devi,

"Katyayani Mahamaye Mayoginyadeeswari,
Nandagopa sutham devi, Pathim me kuruthe Namaha!!"

The Full Sloka is as follows,

"Devendrani Namasthubyam Devendra Priya Bhamini,
Vivaha Bhagyam Arogyam Putra Labham cha Dehime !
Pathim Dehi Sutham Dehi Sowbhagyam Dehi Me Subhe !
Sowmangalyam Subham Gnanam Dehi me Siva sundari !
Katyayani Mahamaye Mayoginyadeeswari,
Nandagopa sutham devi, Pathim me kuruthe Namaha!!"


The above sloka can be recited for overall well being and protection of everyone. In order to have early happy married life, good children, good health and wealth in life one can recite this sloka daily

One May observe that Andal/Godha devi in South Tamil Nadu in Srivilliputhur also observed Katyayani/Pavai Nombu/Vratham during Margasirsha Month in early Morning period.
