WHAT TO ADORE - WHERE AND HOW?

It appears once a devout maid-servant serving in the palace of Yadavaraja of Narayanavanam took fancy to build a tower during the construction of garbhagriha for the Lord by the King - her own master. Ambition of course, laudable, but what about. the wherewithal? Her inner, voice prompted her to collect donations towards the completion. She tried and with the collections thus raised, she built it. Hence it goes by the name of Bikshala gopuram. Biksha stands for alms in colloquial tongue. So justified. Just to its east outside there lies the majestic galigopuram. Crossing it, we come across Sri KasiViswanatha shrine. It is small, but housing the much-venerated Kasi Viswanatha linga, and in its mukhamandap there lie the venerable icons of Saivate deities, like Ganapathy, Lingodbhava Murti, Mother Parvathi and adjacent to it lies another independent mini-shrine for Mata Annapurneswari. The shrines are very old demanding renovation, but the icons are very potent. Hence darsan, indispensable. Then comes the tall second gopuram with niches for Muruga and Vinayaka at the base. To the right hand side, there is a shrine for Sri Subrahmanyaswami.
