SRI ANGALAESWARI & MUNISWARAR TEMPLE - BURMA COLONY- EKKATTUTHANGAL, CHENNAI.

15th May, 2016.
Three days holiday, it includes second Saturday and May 16, 2016, a Voting day. Hot summer outside, what to do, hiding  in the indoor.  Thought of Visiting Sri Muni of Burma colony, at Ekkattuthangal. Planned to Visit the Shiva Temple also near the St Thomas mount Bus stop.  I had been the muni temple twice earlier, while I was in Jaffarkhan pet.  During my earlier visit I had not seen the Shiva  with face.
The temple is dedicated to Sri Angala eswari.
Some of the important details are..
  1. The main sanctum  Sri Vinayagar, Sri Angala Eswari and Kali ( sudhai sirpam of Kali is on the back of the wall) are side by side, in a row.  
  2. In koshtam,  Vinayagar, Dhakshinamurthy, Mahavishnu, Brahma and Durgai ( similar to a Shiva Temple ).
  3. In the outer prakaram, sannadhi for Madurai Veeran, Sri Valli Devasena Subramaniyar (  Arupadai veedu moorthangal are in koshtam) and Naagars.   
  4. Sudhai sirpams of Annapoorani and Saraswathi are at the entrance of Sri Angala Eswari sannadhi.
  5. There is a small muni sanndhi in front of Big Muni.
  6. The main  Muni is about  40 feet with a knife ( aruvaa) in the right hand, which will be around 10 feet high. Sudhai sipangal are around the four corners of the base.  Base itself will be around  10 feet high.  Minute sudhai reliefs on the muni’s ornament  and cap. Pillayar on the cap, Angala eswari, Saraswathi, Annapporani are in the ornament. On the hip and hand some sudhai sirpams too. On the base reliefs of Budha, ladies forms elephant, Horse and elephant & cow are worth to watch.

  3. In Mar 2010, Case Western Reserve University and the Temple Tifereth-Israel announced a historic partnership to create the Milton and Tamar Maltz Performing Arts Center, which was led by a donation of $12 million from the Maltz Family Foundation of the Jewish Community Federation of Cleveland. The university estimates that the total renovation of the building will require $25.6 million, with an additional $7 million needed for construction of a pedestrian bridge/walkway to connect the building to the university campus.Under the agreement, the Jewish community will continue to use the facility for yearly special events.'
