Srimathe Ramanujaya Namaha
Madurai Koodal Azhagar -3
The sculptures on the temple vimanam _1...
The Koodal azhagar who pored his grace on Mandooka Maharshi.
The Lord who welcomes us and showers his grace.
In the basement level, Lord is in sitting posture.
With lis left hand, he calls us "VA" towards him;
With his right hand, he shows the abhaya mudra.
He has conch and disc in the other 2 hands.
Appears with 4 hands as in Vaikunta.
In the middle floor, Sooryanarayana (standing form)
In the top floor, reclining form of the Lord...
Ramayana leelas and sculptures ...
Ravana with 10 heads, 20 hands.
Mareecha, as the golden deer.
On the top floor,
Snatching pot for Gopi
Climbing the uri to take butter
Dancing on Kaliya
He is the Lord who took Mathsya avathar.
Hence the fish in the flag of Madurai.
Lovely sculptures and designs...
