      LORD MAYURESWAR OF MORGAON

THE ARCHAMURTHI

The image of Mayureswar adored here is very huge. It is of the Swayambhu type, without much craftsmanship, but extremely grand to look at. It is in the sitting posture with trunk turning left. Diamonds are embedded in the naval and eyes. The metal image of Nagaraj adorns the head. The excellent finish and sheen are quite enticing and every devotee drinks in the nectarine beauty of the Lord to his soulful and desires to stand enjoying the sight long. The scriptural account adorns him with four arms holding amkush and Pasa in upper arms while the lower right resting on the knee and the left holding medak. He is flanked by Siddhi and Buddhi on his left and right sides. And there are both Mushaka and Mayura, his Vahanas in front. According to the local tradition, this is the same idol installed by the Pandavas in the august presence of Lord Krishna under the guidance of Vyasa in the Dwapara yuga, when they visited this place after the Kurukshetra war. The Mulavirat installed by Brahma now lies in a small but strong copper sheeted cell. So both these adorable images are at one place. The Lord was worshipped by Parasuram too. There are adorable trees, like sami and bilva on the eastern side and Tharti, called Kalpavriksha to the west of the main mandir. Devotes sit under them and meditate for bliss and emancipation.
