This holy place of worship surprises with many oddities and stands apart from several shrines of eternal importance. The first and foremost oddity that greets the yatris is - it is a topless, deorless and timeless temple, yet it is being visited by unending streams of devotees since the dawn of religion. It is reckoned as one of the four very popular saktisthalas. This is called Purnagiripeetha. Fantastic it sounds that this Sakti-Peetha of immense glory lies under a tree. There are found only a Trisul and Linga and these two represent Mother Kali and are worshipped with great ardour. This Sakti-Peetha has in its fore a very big tree seems holding an umbrella over the Mother eternally, with a view to protecting the sacred objects from the onslaughts of weather. Although some of its branches are fallen, it is serving the Mother like an ardent devotee immersed in dhyana and aaraadhana. Strangely enough, the tree too bears no fruit or flower. Does absorption finds time to attend to such trivial things? Ah! what a dedication from a voiceless vriksha! It is more than a rational being who boasts of steadfast devotion, although allowing his mind to roam about during meditation.
