sublime archamurthi was installed by sage Parasuram, the sixth incarnation of
Mahavishnu. Unwillingly leaving her presence due to pressure by the archakas, the devotees step into the adjacent chamber to worship
Indra, Vinayaka, Thyaga
Sundari another adoration-worthy statues that draw the attention of the bhaktas.
There are some more worshipful deities at the eastern prakara of the temple near
the wall. The sculptural wealth of the temple, or its interior decoration is
comparatively modest. So, the sight-seers direct their steps out side to saunter
along the sea-shore, treasuring up several eye-catching sights, like Light
House, Gandhi Memorial Bhavan, palatial buildings, Rest Houses, Adi Sankara
Shrine etc., and finally sit atop the rocks till the siren heralds the sunset to
enjoy the glamorized spectacles of the setting Sun in myriad colours.
