THE GODDESSES OF PERIANAYAKI
The shrine dedicated to Parvathi goes by a special name. Originally this deity called Periyanayaki was in
a garden lying to the north of temple. During the Nayak regime, it was transferred to this grand shrine
built in the first prakara. The huge idol facing the south has unusual charm and it bends the heads in
reverence at its first sight. The sculptural adornments of the walls, pillars ceiling are extremely grand
and speak of the patron's devotion and dedication to arts.
