We are now proceeding to the all powerful Vana Durga temple. The Vinayagar at the right side of the entrance attracts larger number of devotees. In the Arda Mandapa, apposite to us one in Yoga pose bleese us and he is the Dandapani Swamy, graced by the potent Durga. Attired in yellow cloth, Durga stands majestically. An awesome face. That she is not aggressive is disclosed by the kumkum receptacle held in her left hand. The upraised right hand holds the trisula. Her sixteen arms wields a variety of arms and her legs on a lion's head. As she guards the forest-Vana -of Muruga, she is called Vana Durga.
Beyond is Palani Varatham, the Samadhi Koil of Guruswamy Swamigal. A small shrine it is. We have to worship the Linga from the entrance. Here too some Sadhus perform the poojas.
