And the two infants were named Virabhadra and Kshetrapala. Later, Virabhdra went to mount Kailas to be with the Lord, whereas Kshetrapala remained here with Bhadrakali. Hence a separate shrine for this 12-foot-high image of that great son, which lies on the north cast side of the entrance. The other goddesses who also waged a relentless war against Daruka were installed in a separate big shrine. Here along with the six, there is one more added for MOTHER Kali. Hence this place is called Saptamatrukas. 

The deities are adorned with four arms and are facing north. They are in sitting posture, and are adored with equal fervour by the devotees seeing them through the three doors as done in the case of Anantapadmanabhaswamy temple at Tiruvananthapuram. The Goddess in the Srikoil is very majestic and is revealing in fierce aspect with eight arms and represents the Srisakti - the cause of Chaitanya in every object including the highest divinity. Patibhakti represented by Kannaki adored here along with her material remains treasured up in a chamber in the Srikoil itself. Now comes the history and it starts during the golden days of Senguttuvan's imperial power.
