Octagon - Shaped Unique Sanctum

The Rising Sun, surrounded by the planets arranged in an octagon-shaped sanctum

Abirami Bhattar has described in his inspiring hymns, that the Sun during dawn resembles the yogic energy that resides between the eyes of Amman. In the same way, Lord Surya, are installed at the centre in the eastern direction, facing west, showering upon devotees his most beneficial rays of blessings. The remaining eight (8) planets, are arranged around Lord Surya in an octagonal manner, each facing one of the 8 directions. All the Navagrahas are seated on their desired vahanams(vehicles). This is a unique feature in Singapore, that can only be found in our Temple.
