Devi idol decoration during Navaratri

During Navaratri , in almost all Devi temples, the idols are decorated and worshiped. Last week I had been to Tiruvannamalai. In the premises of Ramanshrama, there is  a Devi temple "Matrubhootheshwara". This is a shrine of Shri Ramana's mother. There is also a Shree Chakra. When I visited this temple, I could see idol of Devi is decorated as Shri Krishna.
Behind you can see a cow, mantap is decorated with Gold, Blue and Maroon. 
Here is the closer view:

May the blessings of Shri Devi
shine on you and all your prayers be granted   on this Dasara

Love , laugh and live the life to the fullest,

  5. For a very long time, we are planning to go to Tiruvannamalai .
    Visiting your blog, I felt like visiting Ramana's ashram itself. I have seen this temple, but to see Devi as Lord Krishna is heartening.
    God bless you.

  7. We don't often see goddesses in blue-but why give her the makeover of Lord Krishna?
