Shri Devi Kamakshi Shiroda

Shri Devi Kamakshi Shiroda.

Shri Devi Kamakshi Shiroda. The goddess Kamakshee is the form of Parvati. The main abode of Kamakshee  is the Kamakshi Amman temple at Kanchipuram. Other important forms of goddes. Her consort is Shiva. The main temples of Kamakshi Devi in Goa are the Kamakshi Rayeshwar temple at Shiroda.

Goddess Kamakshi is considered to be the representation of Shri Vidya – Shri Lalita Maha Tripurasundari – she reigns supreme in Kanchi. The image of the goddess has been carved out of a Salagrama shila and the Meru in the temple is also made of Salagrama, believed to be consecrated by sage Durvasa, one of the renowned Shrividya upasakas. Kanchi is one of the most powerful pithas. Many literary and devotional musical compositions have been dedicated to Goddess Kamakshi.

As per Sri Adi Shankarcharyya,for the Bhurivar Subsect of the dasnami sampradaya of the hindu monks having titles Saraswati, Bharati and Puri, the chosen deity is Kamakshi. So those who think that Kanchi math was not established by Sri Adi Shankaracharyya are probably mistaken.
