Adorned as Raja Rajeswari Devi, the last alamkaram of the 10-day Dasara festivities, Goddess Kanakadurga is enthroned with her left foot upon the Sri Chakra. This falls on the tenth day after the victory over the demon Mahishasura, an inhumane force with buffalo face and is celebrated as ‘Vijaya Dasami’.
Raja Rajeswari is said to be the supreme power over the Trimurtis – Brahma, Vishnu and Maheswara are the lords of Ashta Digpalakas who are called as Rajeswar. The Goddess is called Rajarajeswari as she rules over these Trimurthi. Raja Rajeswari Devi is the Goddess of the first and second chakras-Moola Chakra and Swadistana Chakra. Devotees from across the state seek her for forgiveness, relationships, kindness, truth, spirituality, patience and restoration.
On this very day, Goddess Durga along with Lord Mallikarjuna Swamy will be taken for ‘Nadi Viharam’ (celestial boat ride) called ‘Teppotsavam’ in the river Krishna on a decorated ‘Hamsavahanam’. Sri Durga Malleswaraswamivarla Devasthanam has made elaborate arrangements for the ‘Teppotsavam’ on the final day of Dasara. Thousands of devotees are expected to reach the river ghats to witness the ‘Teppotsavam’ which officially concludes the Dasara Navaratri celebrations.
