The birth of Spirit. The birth of Art. The birth of Eternity. The legend dates back to early 1869, when Cotha Krishniah Chetty built a shrine as an ode to the divine feminine. His first homage to the goddess was made from special tiny coloured beads. He crafted the most beautiful pieces of Jewellery that adorned, enhanced and defined her.
In 1869, he gave the shrine a name. It was to be called C. Krishniah Chetty & Sons. Here, he continued to make his masterpieces, woven with the finest threads of gold that surpassed time and space, and unsurpassed beauty. He later built a bigger more luminous place in 1890. This enchanted ground was fertile for his finest works.
His magic invocated the high one and soon found patronage in the Royal families of Mysore, Sandur and Travancore, who became a part of his discerning clientele. Also, his work was highly talked about in the British community located in the Cantonment area.
For the past 140 years, the shrine continues to revere the high born priestess. It is filled with gold and sparkling light. The chanting circles remain eternal, creating timeless pieces of art.
