Goddess Kamakshi symbolizes the eradication of darkness. She is prayed for her Knowledge. One look from the Goddess is enough to fill your life with enlightenment, prosperity, and wealth. It is believed that she blesses her devotees with her eyes itself. The meaning of her name denotes – Ka for Devi Saraswati, Ma for Devi Lakshmi, and Askhi means eyes.
