PEDHE-PARASHURAMA

The temple is a very simple affair architecturally. The plan is formed by a sabhamandap, the easternmost part of the scheme, a central mandap, and a garbhagriha. The latter and the central mandap belong to the Yadav order and it is quite likely that it is an early medieval construction although the roofs etc. are parts of a renovation scheme. The roofs are plain cones and are the least artistic creations. The garbhagriha is quite dark, and houses three idols together. The central one is that of Parashurama, and to his right is that of Kala and to his left is Kama. All are four-armed images and carry their weapons with them. The central image is important iconographically, the lower right hand is in the labhaya’ mudra, the upper right carries an arrow, the upper left a bow, and the lower left a parashu or battle-axe. Neither iconographically nor from the viewpoint of legends have the images of Kala and Kama any relation whatever with that of Parashurama. One does not know how or why they were brought here in association with Parashurama.
