LORD SIVA OF ETTAMANUR

THE ARCHAMURTHI

In the circular shaped Srikoil, a two-foot high Sivalinga is installed on a high pedestal. The deity adorned with garlands and dazzling jewels lifts the souls at its first sight itself. Its radiating grandeur, lit by the flickering of brass lamps around makes the devotees rivet their eyes on him for long, forgetting the world around. Highly evolved souls lost in ecstatic raptures praised this Lord in prose and verse. 

Several holy treatises are written, bringing out the glory of the Lord and the shrine. Another practice observed here is the worship of Mother Parvathi, supposed to be at the back of the Lord's image. To the south of Srikoil there are separate shrines for Ganapathi and Dhakshinamurthi, and to the north for Dharmasastha. The Srikoil has two entrances facing cast and west and there are Dwarapalakas at each entrance.
