KANCHEPURAM - KAMAKSHIAMMAN TEMPLE
It appears that this Ambika was
assuming the form of Kali at nights and was moving about in that
area causing unpleasant disturbances by her dreadful forms. People were in
great terror and spent spleepless nights. When they sought Sankaracharaya's help
he implored the Mother to stop her nocturnal rounds for people's safety. Moved
by his humanism she agreed not to stir oat at nights. Not satisfied with the
agreement, he extracted a promise from her not to go out of the temple without
his permission. She smilingly assured him of her implementation and she did
accordingly, whenever the procession of the Mother is taken out the Utsavamurthi halts
bufore the image of Sri Sankaracharya to taking permission in accordance with
promise given. How strangle. The immortal halting for the permission from a
mortal!! The Aren't the ways of God's inscrutable.
It is in the
heart of Kancheepuram accessible by walk from bus stand.
