KANYAKUMARI

ARCHAMURTI

The five-foot-high granite image of the Virgin Goddess is a sculptural piece of supreme craftsmanship. The captivating visage of Kumari Parvathi in standing posture, enhanced by the sparkle of the nose-jewel, with rosary in right hand affords a grand feast to the mortal eyes.  Her sublime slim frame beautified with sandal paste make-up sends a thrill into the spines of the devout viewers as they look, standing at close quarters.  The floral decoration, lighted up by the numerous brass lamps, hung around enhances her loveliness to a million fold, and beckons trillion looks. 

No wonder her fascinating, sublime, smiling countenance invokes instant veneration in the God intoxicated at the first sight itself and hastens to making prostration at once, although priests make loud protests; but it can be asserted that everyone with out exception commit it mentally.  The two dazzling diamond nose-rings donated by the Maharaja of Trivandrum glow like twinkling stars through the maze of the flaming brass lamps.  Such is the majestic aura of the sanctity about the goddess, whose glorious beauty and invincible might are being sung in prose and verse by hundreds of poets right from the dawn of creative faculty.
