After the death of the king, she ruled the kingdom with skillful administration. The Lord appeared on earth and proposed to her. The marriage was performed under the auspices of Sri Vishnu. This wedding scene is beautifully sculptured in the front entrance of our temple upstairs.
She is the personification of Shiva-Shakti. Meenaksi in our temple is seen holding a parrot in her right hand. This is symbolic of transfer of knowledge. Through lifetime of experiences gained through many life cycles, Sri Meenakshi transformed that knowledge into wisdom.
