Sri Sahasrakshi Meru temple is located in Devipuram village in Visakhapatnam in Andhra pradesh. The primary deity of this temple is Shakti as Sahasrakshi. This particular modern temple was built during 1985-1994 by its creator N. Prahalada Sastry.
The architectural styles of this temple are based on South Indian Architecture with three temples in the premises. The temple belongs to the Shakta school of Hinduism. The goddess Sahasrakshi is regarded as the goddess with thousand infinite eyes. She is also a form of Parvati or Lalita Tripurasundari and her consort is a form of Shiva named Kameshwara.
This temple is built in a unique three-story structure based on the shape of a Sri Meru Yantra. The worship method is known as Tantric Shakta worship. This temple is mainly based on Sri Chakra that means a three-dimensional projection of the sacred Hindu diagram. On the hills adjacent to the main temple, there are two other shrines, the Sivalayam and Kamakhya Peetham.
In Sahasrakshi Meru Temple’s sanctum sanctorum, there are more than 100 life-sized murthis of different shaktis or yoginis based on Srividya cosmology. These murthis are believed to inhabit and energize the so called Sri Chakra.
Navarathiri and Dassara festival are grandly celebrated in this temple. Devotes from the local villages and faraway places visit this temple during this festivity season. Special puja and rituals are conducted on these occasions.
