Permanent Pictorial Cancellation – Temple of Goddess Amba – India – Maharashtra State
Amravati is the seventh most populous metropolitan area in Maharashtra. Among the historical landmarks in the city are the temples of Amba, Shri Krishna and Shri Venkateshwara.
Ambadevi Temple is situated at the heart of the city of Amaravati. The presiding deity is Amba Devi (Goddess of Shakti). There’s a legend that when Lord Krishna ran away with Goddess Rukhamini from her wedding ceremony, he used a tunnel laying from Ambadevi temple to Koundinyapur (another spiritual place near Amravati). This tunnel is still in existence but is now closed. Many research teams over the years have tried to estimate the length of the tunnel but their efforts have been in vain. The cancellation depicts Temple of Goddess Amba.
