Umāsāntvanamūrti (उमासान्त्वनमूर्ति).—Śiva is four handed and the only attribute of Śiva is the mṛga held in his upper left hand. From his upper right hand, he loosens his matted hair and releases Gaṅga. His right fore hand is touching the chin of Umā while his lower left hand is embracing her. The ornamentation, the costumes and the mode of their carving and decoration are all typically Chola in character. The expression in the face of Umā is neatly delineated. She is shown as annoyed by the act of Śiva i.e., keeping Gaṅga is his jaṭa. This aspect of Śiva is also called by the name Gaṅgāvisarjanamūrti.Source: Shodhganga: Temples of Salem region Up to 1336 AD
