A TEMPLE FOR KANNAKI

Around the neck are worn ornaments  like addhika (necklace) and pavan mala, chain woven of gold discs. Below the waist of   the idol, which is in a sitting posture, is worn a crimson cloth. The image glittering in the  numerous lights Placed before it is indeed eye-filling and awe-inspiring.

The idol we see is that of Kali after the killing of asura or demon named Daruka. According to the legend the asuras and devas fought each other. In the battle the asuras were almost exterminated except for two of their ladies named Danamati and Darumati. They worshipped Brahma to have offspring. Brahma advised them to go to Kailasa, marry Mania Rudra and beget children. They did as advised by Brahma and in due course Danamati and Darumati conceived and gave birth to two boys named Karaka and Daruka. Darumati advised her son Daruka to worship Brahma for granting him power to fight the Devas.
