SUCHINDRAM

There appears then the 18 foot-high statue of Hanuma, the synonym for Prabhubhakti.  It is an exquisite piece of superb art' and evokes reverence at its very sight with the special feature of his long tail rising above his head.  It is delivered that he appeared before Sita in Asoka Van in the self-same form and convinced her of his mission.  He is the highly esteemed divinity here and people from far and near pour into the temple to propitiate for success and blessings.  The hope lost and dejected get rejuvenated by offering soulful prayers.  He is held in highest veneration, and worshipped with unparalleled ardor.

This God is the biggest draw of this shrine next to the Moolavar Chitra Sabha is the next one that draws the attention of the devotees.  It is studded with several images of both Saiva and Vaishnava gods. Kankalanathar, Venugopal, Saktiganapathi and Bala Subramanya are prominently placed.  Inside the Sabha, peculiarly besides Sakti and Nataraja in Urdhavathandava pose, the images of Sage Patanjali Arjun, Bhima, Vyagrabahandar and Hanuma are seen testifying to the catholicity of the temple.  And a standing example of Harihara Kshetra by and large.
