CHENGANNUR - MAHADEV AMBALAM

The Images

The Swamyambhulinga of Siva is of three feet in height and wears a forlorn look, recalling his separation from Sati after her immolation in the court of Dhaksha. This linga is adorned with Swarna Kavacha, , fashioned into Ardhanareeswara form. It looks extremely beautiful and resplendent that brings the palms of the bhaktas together at a mere single sight.

The image of Parvathi called popularly as Bhagawati was originally a granite one, but it was later replaced by a beautiful two and half a feet high panchaloha vigraha. The Mother is exceedingly beautiful and with her enchanting lotus -- petalled eyes and smiling countenance, she reveals in two hands -- one in Varadamudra gesture and the other Abhaya. Decorated with several invaluable dazzling jewels and resplendent silks, she casts such an enchantment that bhaktas rivet 'their gaze on her for long. The numerous brass lamps burning bright heighten her loveliness to million fold and make the viewers oblivious of the world for a while. It becomes verily an unforgettable experience to avail the darsan of both Gouri and Shankar in one and the same Srikoil, moreover one behind the other. There are many Upadevathas like Ganesh, Nilasiva, Sthalesan and Dharma sasta in different places receiving veneration.
