MELMARUVATHUR

ARCHAMURTHI

The idol of Sri Adiparasakti in Sukhasana - in easeful sitting posture is placed on a tack stone shaped into a lotus that serves as pedestal: She reseals herself ire Santha Swarupa - the tranquil aspect and accepts only Sativika Puja - absence of animal sacrifices. Right below the idol lies the Swayambhu - the self manifested lingam-the prime cause of the emergence of Sri Adi Parasakti temple. 

To the left, adjoining the Karivarai there is a small shrine called Puthu Iklandapam - where according to tradition, Sri Adiparasakti was doing penance in the form of serpent. Next to it lies the Saptakanyakar klandapam, enshrining the big size images of Saptakanyas with small rectangular stone pieces installed at the base.
