MADURAI KSHETHRA – Sri Meenakshi Shrine

After seeing the Golden Lotus tank we crossed the Vembathoor Tower and enter in outer Praharam of Meenakshi Shrine. In this Praharam the Golden Flag Staff, Thirumalai Vinayak, King Thirumalai Nick Mandalay, Gold Mandalay, Koodal Kumarar are seen. Completing this Praharam we returns to the Flag staff and enter into the temple on the way of Aargau Peedam (Pedestal with six pillars). During the Chita festival the coronation of Devi Meenakshi is performed here every year.
In the entrance of the Maha Mandapam or inner Praharam we saw two beautiful copper images of Dwargabalas. In this Maha Mandapam rattan Vinayakar, Murtha Kumar’s and Palliyarai (Holy Bedroom) are seen to the west and near by there are the Artha Mandapam and the sanctum Spectrum. We worshiped Sri Meenakshi who stands with a parrot and a bouquet , radiating love and compassion. The sublime grace of the divine holy mother and her infinite mercy are beyond words. None Hindus are not allowed inside the Meenakshi shrine.
