BHAGAWATHI OF GHENGANNUR

Moreover, it has several distinctive features that narrates many episodes, all but proving the positiveness of the prevalence of the Supreme Power, responsible for the moment of a single blade of grass in the world. It is at this Punya thirtha, Mother's Sati's reproductive organ fell, when her corpse was cut into pieces by Sri Mahavishnu with his Sudarsana Chakra while being carried by Lord Siva that turned out to be the prime cause of periodical bleeding by the panchaloha image.

It is here the Swaymbhu linga of Lord Parameswar is worshipped in the fore of the shrine, and the Mother in the name of Bhagavati at the rear, i.e. both the august deities in one place, yet in separate independent shrines; it is here the Adidampatis dwelt for one month after their wedding to fulfil the promise given to Agasthya, who was staying there on the Sondri to keep the tilting earth in equilibrium; it is here the chaste Kannaki did tapas after the disastrous event of burning Madurai, consequent on the death of her Lord Kovalan; it is to celebrating; of Triputtu festival, colonel Munro, the Resident Diwan of Travancore donated Rs.700/- in 1811 A.D. and allowed the continuance of the same ritual every year at his expense, which is in force even today; it is to the building of this temple, the famous architect Perunthachan - renowned as Kerala, Viswakarma was appointed, and who deliberately incorporated certain forbidden practises, so was punished fittingly by the presiding deity; it is here in the dim past, thousands of Nambudri families brought by Bhargava Rama lived and carried on the Vedic activities in uninterrupted continuity; it is here lies the much-hallowed Saktikunda thirtha; where a homa for Mother Parvathi was performed; it is here the offering of Pushpanjali ritual is made for the fulfillment of desires; it is the west Nada of this temple deemed an august spot for taking oath; it is here in this campus, a sacred stone is relieving fear from a snake bite by mere standing on it and praying; it is the deity of this shrine that wards off the evil spirits and it is this Mokshapuri that enshrines the images of Parvathi and Parameswar, installed one behind the other in the same Srikoil - Lord Siva facing the East and Mother Parvathi the west, and are worshipped with equal fervour proving the existence of perfect equality between Siva and Sakti, a unique feature in temple architecture, though literature abounds in abundant proof to this truth.
