THE MOTHER'S MANDIR

It is indeed a vast well-built independent temple adorned with beautiful sculpture and architectural designs. Built in the Dravidian architectural model, it contains, garbhagriha, antarala, mukhamandapa and mahamandapa etc. The adorable statue of the Mother in standing posture is a grand model of superb sculpture. It is about ten feet in height and the facial features are well-chesilled to perfection that wring veneration. Close observation reveals that the head of the icon is leaning to her right a little bit to receive Sivapanchakshari from her Lord. The sculptor's craftsmanship merits mention and corroborates the episode enshrined in the legend. The artistic decoration with dazzling diamond jewels and colourful garlands heighten the splendour of the Mother and bend heads in veneration at first sight itself. Indeed it is a great feast to the eyes to see her draped in the Swarna Kavacha and golden saree on Fridays. Devout bhaktas avail this, by fixing their visit on this auspicious day. As she is renowned for granting liberal boons, soulful prayers are offered with several rituals. A unique sight that remains in mind, beckoning repeated visits for darsan till the visitor shuffles off his mortal coil.
