Indian Idols

Idol of Shiva at Ettumanoor Mahadevar Temple...


Shiva is a popular Hindu deity. He is one of the five primary forms of God, believed as "the Destroyer" or "the Transformer" among the Hindu Trinity of the primary aspects of the divine. The main iconographical attributes of Shiva are the third eye on his forehead, a snake around his neck, the crescent moon adorning, the holy river Ganga flowing from his matted hair.


Idol of Subramaniya at Kidangoor Subramaniya Swamy Temple...


Subramaniya is the Hindu god of war, victory, wisdom and love. He is the son of Shiva and brother of Ganesha. He is depicted with his weapon – Vel, the Divine Spear or Lance that he carries and his mount the peacock. His peacock mount symbolizes his destruction of the ego.

I could find one peacock sculpture on the temple flag pole too...
