Welcome to Sri Kamakshi
Sri:This word is a title for the deity generally in the female form.
Kamakshi: means Goddess Lakshmi or Parvati, in the Hindu pantheon, the "names" of the deities are more descriptions than names. Tripura Sundari, like many of the forms of the supreme, has 1000 names assigned to her and these can be found in the Lalitha sahasranama text. One of the names in this text is "Kamakshi" which means "She whose eyes awaken desire, or She who has beautiful eyes”. The word Kamakshi could also be split as 'ka' 'ma' and 'akshi' . Where 'akshi' in Sanskrit means eyes, the letter ka denotes goddess Kali Parvati and 'ma' denotes goddess Matangi which is also Parvati. Thus Kamakshi is Parvati and it is enough if she merely glances at her devotees, not even lifting her hand in benediction, the devotee is sure to receive all that he prays for.
Ekambameswara: is represented by the lingam, with his idol referred to as Prithvi lingam. It is significant to the Hindu sect of Saivism as one of the temples associated with the five elements, the Pancha Bhoota Stalas, and specifically the element of earth, or Prithvi. Shiva is worshiped as Ekambareswarar.
Dhaam: Dhaam is a place to worship or abode of the gods including Lord Shiva.
