about kamakshi amman temple

Kanchi Kamakshi Temple, Tamil Nadu is situated at about 5 acres of land and has four entrances. The main entrance of the temple has a Kalabhairavar deity on its left and the Mahishasura Mardini deity on the right. On the centre of the entrance you can see a huge Dwajasthampa.

Much of the temple as we see it today  dates to the 14 CE when an older shrine was extensively rebuilt. Beneath a gold-plated vimanam is the sanctum inside which sits Kamakshi, resplendent with four hands holding a noose, staff, sugarcane bow and flower arrows.
