  KANYAKUMARI - KUMARI AMMAN TEMPLE

ARCHAMURTI:

The five foot-high granite image of the virgin Goddess is a sculptural piece of supreme craftsmanship. The captivating visage of Kumari Parvathi to standing posture resting on the shapely developed body, enhanced by the sparkle of the nose, jewel, with rosary in right hand affords a grand feast to the mort eyes. Her sublime slim frame beautified with sandal paste make up sends thrills into the spines of the devout viewers, as they look standing at close quarters. The floral decoration, lighted up by the numerous brass lamps, hung around enhances her loveliness to a million fold, and beckon trillion looks. No wonder her fascinating, sublime, smiling countenance invokes instant veneration in the God-intoxicated at the first sight itself and hastens them to making prostration at once, although priests make loud protests; but it can be asserted that everyone without exception commit it mentally. The two dazzling diamond nose rings donated by the Maharaja of Trivandrum glow like twinkling stars through the maze of the flaming brass lamps. Such is the majestic aura of the sanctity about the goddess, whose glorious beauty and invincible might are being sung in prose and verse by hundreds of poets right from the dawn of creative faculty.
