A TEMPLE FOR KANNAKI

In the hall adjoining the sanctum of Kali on its West Side are seven images known as Saptamatrukas or seven Mothers. They represent the six Goddesses whom the Gods created as described above to kill Daruka and Chamundi. The images, each with four arms are in the sitting posture facing north. There are three doors to the hall through which they can be seen. 

Secret Chamber

To the east of the Kali image there is a small chamber with no doors or windows nor any other opening over ground. It has no entrance and is covered on all sides with granite though there is a roof above. It is, therefore, called the secret chamber. There is however an underground passage from this room eastward, which opens to overground about hundred yards away in the temple courtyard. The mouth of this passage is shut at ground level and an enclosure has been erected around it. The elephant procession during the festival turns back when it reaches the spot without damage to the passage.
