  GOKARNA - TAMARA GOWRI DEVALAYA

SOURCES:

Holy scriptures embody abundant information dealing wrath the origin of the this kshetra; adoration by the people; donations made by worshippers, and liberation obtained by the believers in details. The great epics like the Ramayana and Mahabaratha have several references about the glory of this divya thirtha kshetra in addition to Puranas and devotional literature augumenting them from time to time.

It is fairly a big temple with three prakaras and imposing towers. There are many adorable gods in the inner prakara, installed in beautiful niches and grand mandapas. Among the mini shrines that attract the visitors, the sannrdhi of Mother Tamara Gowri deserves first mention. The image besides being a marvelous piece of sculpture, is declaring the glory of the kshetra in an odd way. She is holding in her hand a balance with one pan touching the pedestal and the other up dangling in the air representing thereby that Gokarna being greater and holier than Kasi is lower and so Kasi is up dangling.
