CHOTTANIKARA

The deity is worshipped in three different forms Saraswati in the morning clothed in an impeccable white garment, as Bhadrakali at noon with crimson red cloth as Durga in the evening wearing a bright blue dress. It is because of these threefold aspects of Saraswati, Bhadrakali and Durga that she is worshipped as Rajarajeswari.

Alongside the Devi, to her right, is another image Vishnu-in granite. This is about two feet high springing from the same pedestal. They together are called Lakshminarayana. Hence the popular chant of devotees. "Amme (Mother) Narayana," "Devi Narayana", "Lakshmi Narayana," etc.
