Should not such sacred shrine be the fittest seat for Mother Durgambikai? She was brought and consecretated with great fanfare. Along with her, three more idoles of Ganesh, Shanmuga and Bhairava were installed then. The six-foot high black granite icon of the Mother is exceedingly majestic and reveals her santhaswarupa in standing posture with eight hands holding potent weapons. There is her mount simha standing to her left. The elaborate decoration with glittering jewels and colourful garlands heightens her imposing sature and splendour a thousand fold. And it raises hands in devotion the moment it comes into sight. Agamic worship is with great weal. 

And for effective and quick succour, devotees throng the temple on Fridays and Sundays and particularly during Rahukalam to be warded off Sanibadha. Special pujas like Navakoti archana are offered for lokasanti when the whole premises overflow with devotees who transform the temple into Bhukailas with colour and pegeantry aided and abetted by sound blaring forth from modern audio gadgets.

It lies about 10 km off Kumbhakonam, linked by town bus.
