The below photographs of the Goddess were taken Friday evening, 5th August 2016, the day of Adi Pooram at Rajarajeshwari Temple off the Girivalam Roadway. My friend who visited the Temple at around 8.30 p.m. said that even at such a late time, well after the puja had been completed there were over 200 devotees still at the Temple eager to take darshan of what many believe to be is a living Goddess. Without a doubt this is the most loved and adored Goddess at Arunachala -- who at every Festival is dressed and garlanded in the most glorious fashion.
If you have not yet visited this Goddess at Arunachala, make sure to take Her darshan next time you come. To find out more about the Rajarajeshwari Temple, the Koorm Pristhiya (Kurma Meru Yantra) in the inner Shrine and The Dasa Mahavidyas - The Ten Wisdom Goddesses in the mandapam, refer to my website Arunachala Samudra at this link here.
