Omkarananda Kamakshi Devi Mandir


Dhvajastambha is Sanskrit and means "flag tree" or "flag pole". It is situated just in front of the temple to proclaim the presence of the deity. It represents the hub of the universe around which all creation revolves. It represents the spine, the human axis, around which the senses and cosmic energy (Kundalini) sublimate into the Absolute (Sahasrara). Metaphysically, it acts as the complementary pole to the murti. These two together create an energy field to contain the temple’s power.
