TRIPRAYAR - CLOSING OF WESTERN GATE

But it did not appear. As the sands were running out, the anxiety of the people went up skyward, but the sky with its changing patterns perhaps, did not offer any sure clue. Just then there appeared a devotee holding a bunch of peacock feathers in his hands. The concerned persons hastened to complete the pratishta ritual at the moment fixed. They completed. Fortunately at that propitious time, a few, minutes later, of course, according to right calculations, the bird did appear just right above the present balikal. The pundits installed the balikal there with due ceremonies and prayers. Hence the balikal is worshipped with equal fervour by the visiting public. This oddity surprised the devotees then. But the Balikal fixed thus sarted revolving round of its own accord. Attributing it to divine power, people worshipped it with awe and admiration till 'a sage called Naranthu Baranthan's visit to the temple. Being a Siddha of great mystic powers, surprised at this rare phenomenon. He found out from the yogic powers the reason for such rotation. If allowed, he inferred, it would undo the glory of the temple and mar further growth. So; he stopped it forthwith. In order to prevent the decline in the power of the idol due to this, he installed the icons of two goddesses - Sridevi and Bhudevi on each side of the presiding deity. Naturally, the influx of visitors grew as fame spread far and wide, due to addition of two goddesses on either side of the mulavirat.
