about kamakshi amman temple

Kanchi Kamakshi Temple, Tamil Nadu is situated in 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. Much of the temple as we see it today  dates to the 14 CE when an older shrine was extensively rebuilt. On the centre of the entrance, you can see a huge Dwajasthampa.  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.
