Kamakshi Amman Temple, Kanchipuram – Raudra Swaroopa
Another popular myth is about Adi Shankara pacifying the Raudra Swarupa of Kamakshi. Sri Kamakshi is Purna Brahma Swarupini and she did not attain Raudra. The shrine in the temple premises, referred to as Adi Kamakshi, is actually Kalaikambal. It is possible that this deity was pacified by Adi Acharya.
