  KODUNGALLUR - KALI AMBALAM

It is shut and an enclosure is erected around. It is held in such high esteem that nobody ever entered it nor knows what it contains Moreover, none is allowed to probe into its mysteries. There is hung up a crimson cloth against its western wall and it is adored with lighting of lamp and singing of hymns. Even the highest dignitary including the priest. never went beyond this point of knowledge.

The nest adorable objects here are the Saptamatrukas installed to a hall adjoining the Srikoil. The kshetrapalaka's image lies to the courtyard on the north east side. It is a twelve foot high image that beckons attention by its mere size and shape. lt represents one of the two infants created by Lord Siva to suckle the breasts of Mother Kali to appease her roudra. And according to another version he was created by Lord Siva to assist the goddess Kali to organise the army in the war fought against Daruka. Heir on the south west there is a shrine for Vasurimala believed to be the cause of epidemics and contagious diseases. Thousands were killed from small-pox etc., when she asserted tier evil form. To end such calamity, MOTHER Kali on subduing, confined her to a small shrine  Devotees worship her with sprinkling of turneric powder with supplications not to harass there anyone thereafter. All most all devotees offer prayers to this deity. And sometimes guruthi it also offered. These are the deities receiving veneration visitors since the beginning.
