The goddess Kamakshee is the form of Parvati and Tripura Sundari. The main abode of Kamakshi is the Kamakshi Amman temple at Sri Kanchipuram, 90 kms from Chennai, India. Goddess Kamakshi is considered to be the representation of Shri Vidya - Shri Lalita Maha Tripurasundari - she reigns supreme in Kanchi; the image of the goddess has been carved out of a Salagrama shila and the Meru in the temple is made of Salagrama, believed to be consecrated by sage Durvasa, one of the renowned Shrividya upasakas. Kanchi is one of the most powerful pithas. Many literary and devotional musical compositions have been dedicated to Goddess Kamakshi; as per Sri Adi Shankarcharyya,for the Bhurivar Subsect of the dasnami sampradaya of the hindu monks having titles Bharati and Puri, the chosen deity is Kamakshi. So those who think that Kanchi math was not established by Sri Adi Shankaracharyya are mistaken. While to many westerners it might seem that Kamakshi must be different from Tripura Sundari as they appear to have different names.
However, 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 Lalita 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 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, Parvati, thus Kamakshi is Parvati and it is enough if she glances at her devotees, not lifting her hand in benediction, the devotee is sure to receive all that he prays for. Shri Kamakshi temple located at Shiroda was built in the late 16th century built; the other shrines in the temple complex are that of Shree Shantadurga, Shree Laxmi Narayana and Shree Rayeshwar. Boarding and Lodging for the pilgrims are provided by the temple authorities; the temple has banned entry of foreigners into the temple citing objectionable dressing and conduct as the reason.
This temple was located at Raia in Salcette and was moved to its present location in 1564-1568,because as a part of Goa Inquisition the Portuguese demolished all the Hindu shrines.. The antiquity of the original temple is unknown; the new temple is located at Shiroda. There are other temples for Kamakshi in Goa. In November 2013, Temple began to offer Live darshan on its website, it is the only temple in Goa to offer Live Darshan in streaming format for hundreds of devotees at a time. END This temple is located on the banks of Pennar river at Jonnawada, Nellore district, Andhra Pradesh, India, it has a unique mythological background. The Goddess Kamakshi was incarnated from Goddess Parvati with Matangi in her eyes; this temple was built in 1150 AD. Brahmotsavam is celebrated every year around early June; the Sri-Kamadchi-Ampal-Temple in Hamm, opened in 2002, claims to be the second largest Hindu temple in Europe.

Along with Asianet, Star India operates Asianet Plus, Asianet Movies and Asianet HD in Malayalam language. All Asianet shows are available online though Star India's digital application Hotstar. At a time when the only Malayalam-language television channel available was owned by Star India Pvt Ltd. the channel had hired a transponder on the Russian Ekran satellite, with an uplink from Dubna in the erstwhile Soviet Union. The company hired a transponder on the Rimsat satellite, shifted the uplink to Pinugay and to Subic Bay in the Philippines; the Malayalam transmission was only three hours per day with the rest of the time showing selective programs from Australian Broadcasting Corporation and CNBC. This was increased to 12 hours per day by the end of 1994 and to round the clock broadcasting.
Asianet was the first private TV channel of India to do "live" news broadcasting from its Subic Bay uplink centre. In early 1995, the uplink was shifted to Singapore. With a change in the broadcasting policies of the Government of India, Asianet started an uplink from Chennai through VSNL. From 15 July 2002, Asianet had its own earth station at the Asianet Studio Complex in Puliyarakonam, Thiruvananthapuram. Over the course of more than two decades of operations, Asianet has developed its own in-house production facilities and now has full-fledged production studios in Thiruvananthapuram and Kochi; the registered office of Asianet Communications Limited was at Chennai. The main promoters of the channel were Sashi Kumar Menon. Asianet Communications Limited's majority share was acquired by Jupiter Media and Entertainment Venture, owned by Anoop Sree Ayroor.

Sasikumar and the Vice President Prem Menon; the signature song of Asianet, "Shyama Sundara Kera Kedhara Bhoomi", is a much-appreciated song among Keralites. Created in 1994, airing in the early years of the channel in the mid-90s, the song was written by renowned Malayalam poet P. Bhaskaran, composed by two-time Academy Award-winning Indian composer A. R. Rahman and sung by Sujatha and Kalyani Menon; the video for the song is a collage of the various tokens of ethnic and traditional heritage belonging to Malayalees, set against a backdrop of the beautiful natural sights and landscapes of Kerala. Airing in the late 90s, the video became a part of Malayalee culture; the symbol becomes recognizable by Malayalees and it is a long-standing emblem for Asianet.
