Shobha(usha) gowri A temple that carries the heaviness of history in its being-the fall and the rise reflecting on her face.
The Lord is called Meghanathar and the Goddess is Lalithambigai.
This is the birthplace of the Lalitha sahasranama.She sits in all her glory and it is with great effort you can take your eyes off her.The tejas, the abhyam and the feet-on which is the anklet that helped revive the temple.
The story about the anklet is quite confusing-but obviously it was covered with what looked like stone.A lady in Bangalore-yes Bangalore-had this constant dream of a lady telling her about an anklet and how the message had to reach the priest of the temple.No indications of who the lady in her dream was or where.
Finally one day a friend showed her a photo of a Goddess in an ancient temple-and from there everything fell in place.The priest didnt believe her but on her insistence agreed to chip off the stone covering the leg.
And there was a huge anklet carved on both feet-an anklet that today in the deepa arathana the priest shows to the visitors
The sthala purana abounds with many interesting characters and stories;the centre stage though is the majestic presence of the Goddess.
People come here to pray for marriage and if the numbers coming in and offering the anklet or the prayer is any indication the rise of the temple has begun.And that to me is the biggest of joys;for in the midst of the fields and among far flung tiny little villages is proof of what a majestic civilization existed.
For those of you who would like to visit are the many website with info
Dont miss the carving of Shiva-Parvathi: from one angle the Goddess looks upset with Shiva pacifying her;on the other she is seen as being coy.
A reminder of the skills and aesthetics we have lost
