I posted an article on the 18 Shakti Peetams by Adi Shankaracharya and followed it up with a Post on the The Shakti Peetam A Complete List. I received emails that complaining that I have included Kanchi Kamakshi as a Shakti Peeta in my 18 Shakti Peetas Post. On posting The Shakti Peetams Complete List I have received more emails pointing out that I have not included the Kamakshi temple in the Post. A writer who has Publisheda Book on the Shakti Peetams wanted to know the actual position of Kancipuram as a Shakti Peeta. If one notices the complete list of the Shakti Peetas complete list, it will be noticed only Four places in the South have been named as Shakti Peetas. 1. The Bhagavathy temple in Kanyakumari,-This is thought to be situated in Yunnan province, China. 2.Sarvashail or Godavaritir, at Kotilingeswar temple on the banks of Godavari river near Rajamundry. 3. Srisailam in Shriparvat hills under Kurnool district. This is also thought to be in Shri Parvat, near Ladak, Jammu and Kashmir. 4. Shuchi, in a Shiva temple at Suchindrum 11 km on Kanyakumari Trivandrum road This is based on Brahmanda Purana, one of the major eighteen Puranas, it mentions 64 Shakthi Peetha of Goddess Parvati in the Bharat or Greater India including present day India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. According to the manuscript Mahapithapurana (c. 1690 – 1720 CE), there are 52 such places. Among them, 23 are located in the Bengal region, 14 of these are located in what is now West Bengal, India, 1 in Baster (Chhattisgarh), while 7 are in what is now Bangladesh.

The idol is also leaning a little to the left to listen to the sages composition. The Saptashati or the "Durga Stuti" forms an integral part in the vedic form of Shakti worship.
