MANNARGUDI

The goddess is known as Senbagavalli Tayar, who has a separate shrine. Her names in Sanskrit are Hemabjanayaki and
Raktabjanayaki. On her sides are Rajanayaki on the right and Dwaranayaki or, the left. She has four arms. This shrine has separate
prakarams.

There are small shrines in the temple dedicated to Rama, Sita, Lakshmana, Garudalwar, etc. The Garuda Stambha placed in front of the Lord's shrine is 54 feet high and is made of a -single stone. There are many Vahanams in the temple of which Panchamukha Hanuman (Hanuman with five faces) is worth mentioning. Garuda Vahanam and Horse Vahanam are plated with gold and are said
to have been donated by a European officer who was cured of his colic on offering worship to the Lord.

Many festivals take place in this temple throughout the year and theBrahmotsavam is celebrated in the month of Panguni
(Marc April). This is a very ancient temple and has figured in the Maha Bharata, Brahmanda Purana, Sriranga Purana and
Tirupati Purana.
