The new permanent home for the Mother will be over 25,000 sq ft in area and will feature beautiful freestanding sannidhis (shrines) for the Mother, Ganapati, Subhrahmanya and Siva. Siva’s sannidhi will face West while the other three face East. Rajarajeswari Devi’s sannidhi will open into an ardhamandapam with the Mahameru at the center. A few short steps will lead into the grand mahamandapam (a raised, pillared hall) featuring a variety of unique and beautifully carved pillars. Facing the Devi at the other Eastern end of the mahamandapam will be her nandi-vahanam, bali peetham and dhwajasthambam, as well as the yagashala (homa kundam).
Around the mahamandapam along the North and South walls will be located smaller sannidhis for various deities associated with the Sri Vidya and Saiva Siddhanta traditions, such as Dattatreya, Nataraja-Sivakami, Ardhanareeshwara, Manonmani (Akhilandeshwari) Devi, Anjaneya, Bhakta Nayanmars, Bhairava and the Navagrahas. The north wall will also feature a vasantha mandapam for all the utsava murthis (processional deities).
In between the mahamandapam and these smaller sannidhis will be a wide space where devotees can sit, walk around in pradakshina, gather for festivals, or take the utsava deities in procession on a silver chariot within the temple.
In the south-east will be the pakashala, the kitchen, exclusively for the preparation of naivedyam for the deities.
The eastern end of the temple will feature visitor services areas such as the Bookstore and Office. The western end will feature specially outfitted rooms for puja preparation and alankaram for the use of temple volunteers. Steps will lead down to a large basement with ample storage space for puja materials and other temple assets, as well as common spaces such as meeting rooms and classrooms accessible to the public.
The temple will enclosed by an outer wall and have four grand entrances, one from each of the cardinal directions. Each entrance will be adorned with a traditional gopuram. The Eastern gopuram will be 54′ in height and when the Eastern doors are open, the Devi will have a direct line of sight to the open land that slopes down to the creek. The other three gopurams will be 33′ in height.
