Adampillykavu Bhadrakali Temple – Tripunithura – Rare Temple With Two Same Vigrahams In Sreekovil

Adampillykavu Bhadrakali temple is located at Vadakkekotta near Tripunithura in Ernakulam district, Kerala. The temple is also known Adampallikavu. The main deity worshipped in the temple is Goddess Bhadrakali and the shrine is unique as the sreekovil or the sanctum sanctorum has two vigrahams of the same murti. The vigrahams in the sreekovil are made out of wood – Dharuvigraha Pratishta. It is rarest of rare to have two vigrahams of the same deity in the same sanctum. It is believed that the new vigraham of Bhadrakali was installed in the sanctum and the shakti from the old vigraham was supposed to transferred into the new one. But it became impossible to transfer the complete shakti from the old Vigraham and therefore it could not be removed. So both vigrahams are worshipped now. Another belief is that the original bimbam or the moola vigraham was so powerful that it became impossible to do pujas. Therefore a new vigraham was installed in the sanctum to reduce the power of the

Goddess Devi Worshipped As Energy In Hinduism

There are many concepts of Shakti worship in Hinduism and one of the foremost among it is the worship of Goddess Devi as energy. In every visible matter, invisible power energy is embedded.
