BHAGAWATHI OF GHENGANNUR

THE IMAGES

The Swayambhulinga is of three feet in height and wears a forlorn look, recalling his separation from the Sati after her immolation in the court of Dhaksha. This linga is adorned with Swarna Kavacha, fashioned into Ardhanariswara form. It looks extremely beautiful and resplendent that joins the palms of the bhaktas at a mere single sight.  The image of Parvathi called popularly Bhagawati was originally a granite one, but it was replaced by a beautiful two and half a feet high panchaloha vigraha. The Mother is exceedingly beautiful with her enchanting lotus-petalled eyes and smiling countenance.

She reveals with two hands - one in Varadamudra and the other Abhaya. Decorated with several invaluable dazzling jewels and resplendent silks, she casts an enchantment that the Bhaktas rivet their gaze at her for long. The numerous brass lamps burning bright heighten her loveliness to million fold and make the viewers oblivious of this 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, Sthaleesan and Dharma sastra in different places receiving veneration.
