This shrine was the original Gayathri Temple where services were held before the large temple hall was built. The first service was held here on 27th September 1996, even though the building was not yet complete. It took more than a year to build and was finally finished during 1997. The murthi of Mother Gayathri was consecrated by Swami Murugesu on 5th April 1998 after the consecration of Mother Duruga which was held on the 16th November 1996. Other murthis housed in this temple are: Ganesha, Duruga and Mahavishnu. The precise positioning of this temple displays a rare and unique occurrence every winter when the rays of the sun illuminate the Mother both at sunrise (07h00) and at sunset (15h00). Today this temple is used every Saturday morning for Navagraha Pooja and every Thursday for Gayathri abishegam.
