The golden shield and the diamond studded crown


On every Monday the goddess is adorned with the golden shield and the diamond studded crown, in the sanctum sanctorum of the Meenakshi Amman Temple. It is a beautiful scene to see the divine appearance in these adornments. A charge of Rs. 500/- is to be paid for this Dharsan. But, of late, the practice of adorning with golden shield & Diamond crown has been kept in abeyance.
