The Temples of Tirupati – Kamakshi

This goddess stands in samabhanga holding ankusa in the upper right hand and pasa in tile upper left. Her lower hands are in abhaya and varada.
The Garbhagriha and Antarala are of the Chola times as indicated by theirarchitectural features. The other parts of the shrine might have collapsed on account of a thunder-fall as mentioned in the inscriptions. The Mukhamantapa, the front verandah and the hall to the south were added during Vijayanagara times. The jams, however, seem to be of the Chola period.
