Another image of Kamakshi, a loving form of Durga, in her garbha griha at the Ramnathi Devasthan, Ponda, Goa.. The utsav murthy, which is taken around the temple in a palanquin, is placed in a niche in the wall behind. Angels appear to have been recruited for decorating the niche. Murthy of Kamakshi before her alankar can be seen in my Dassara greeting from last year.
A devotee preparing the aartis for the evening puja. A superbly beautiful time to be in the temple.
