A TEMPLE FOR KANNAKI

Who drinketh on ocean of blood

of asuras cut down like tender coconuts

Of blood shed from the bodies

of asuras killed by her.

I worship thee, Oh Mother!

Who roaring and laughing aloud,

And surrounded by her company of goblins

Tortured the asuras with Khatwangas.

The majestic idol of Kali is about six feet high and is made of wood. It is said to have been carved out of the trunk of a jack-fruit tree. It is decked with gold ornaments, a kirita (crown) like the one used by actors in Kathakali and a mask. It has eight arms, which carry various weapons, and symbols, some of which are difficult to identify. All the parts except the hands are covered by golden raiment.
