Goddess Matha Bhuvaneswari

The temple has a sannidhi dedicated to Goddess Bhuvaneshwari, the Universal Mother. The 6-foot stone icon radiates beauty, peace and grace. Goddess Bhuvaneshwari is regarded as Shrividhya or Lalitha Maha Tripura Sundari. It is believed that the 10 incarnations (Dasavatara) of Lord Vishnu emerged from the 10 fingernails of Goddess Bhuvaneshwari. She holds the noose to draw the devotee closer to her, angusam to rid the devotee of their sufferings. Her abhaya hastham confers blessings and prosperity to the devotee. One eye of Goddess Bhuvaneshwari who is one of the Dasamahavidya is regarded as Raja Mathangi, who bestows prosperity and erudition and the other that of Varahi- the Commander-in-chief of the celestial army, who protects devotees from all evil.


The other Dasamahavidya deities Kali, Tara, Shodasi, Tripurabhairavi, Cinnamastha, Dhumavati, Bagalamuki, Rajamathangi, Kamalathmika are installed around the sannadhi. This gopuram represents the Tamilnadu type of architecture.
