Idols on the temple shrine gets a new look

Newly painted idols on the back side of the temple shrine

It's an arduous task to paint thousands of idols that adorn the temple shrine. New colours have given an aura of divinity and sanctity around them. These idols of top of the shrine is one of the greatest attraction of Attukal temple. One cannot forget the thousands of idols that represent various stories related to Goddess Bhadrakali told in the Hindu puranas; as if the temple is a symbolic representation of the Devi purana.
