CHOTTANIKARA

The vigraha, which faces east is of laterite, three or four feet high and is said to be self-born. It has no well-defined shape. It can be seen only in the morning when the nirmlyam (previous day's flowers, garlands etc.) is removed.

At other times, it is covered with beautiful golden raiment about four or five feet high. This idol has four arms -- the upper right holds the disc, the upper left bears the conch, the lower right hand is held in a boon-conferring pose the lower left indicates the abhaya (fearlessness) pose. Indeed the golden-hued idol bedecked with flowers, garlands and jewels and bathed in myriad lights kept in front shines resplendently. It is a picturesque bewitching everybody, an embodiment of peace, dispelling fear from devotees who bow before Her.
