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.
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.
