ANNAVARAM

There is in the Annavaram temple a famous and a unique Yantra the like of which does not exist anywhere else in India.

The Yantra is based on the Tripad Vibhuti Narayana Upanishad, which is a part of the Devarshi sakha of the Atharvaveda.

The shrine is constructed in two stories, the lower one containing the Yantra, and the upper one containing the vigrahas of the Lord.

The Garbha griha of the Lord has four entrances., In the centre thereof, like a Panavattam under the Shivalinga, Tripe- ethas are constructed, and on the top of them over the Meru portion, the Beeja- kshara Samputi of the Yantra is chiseled.

At the apex thereof which forms the Bindu, a monolithic pillar is constructed and on the top of the pillar the image of the Lord is in the centre, the image of the Goddess is in the right and a Shivalinga is on the left.

The idols are of exquisite grace andbeauty and are encaged in gold Kavachams.
