View from the Madley subway end just as the temple was opened but there is a screen in front of the Main diety

There is a vedapatashala and today morning we saw the students performing various jobs in preparation of abhisekam which we were blessed to witness .
The ambal is very serene and is just like the kamakshi at Kanchi
