TIRUVARUR - NILOTPLALAMBIKAI
The Siva in the name of Tyagarajar gives darsan and the
Somaskandar form is quite captivating.
The deveris of
the presiding deity are Neelotpalambal and Kamalambigai. This is one of the
Sakti-Peethas called Kamala peetham or Kamakala peetham. Neelothapalambal's
shrine is situated in the second prakara and the icon is standing posture with
right hand adorned by a flower and the lifted finger of the left hand holdidng
the tiny little finger of Muruga carried by her attendant standing to her left.
Such bet itching sight is now here found in any temple in India or abroad. This
fascinating posture and gesture imply her affection for children and hence the craze
for her darsan of mothers with babes in their hands throughout the year.
