Hi all,

There is a shlokam before the main song of Kanjadalaya dhakshi which is not explained.
Can anyone help with the meaning of this shlokam?

The shlokam is as follows:

Kaanchinoopura ratna kankala lasatkeyura alojwala
Kaashmeeraaruna kanchukaanchita kucha
kastoorika charchita kalhaaraanchita hastayudmalasitaam
karunya kallorini kaamakshi kalayami kalpalatika
kanchipuri devata

Kaamaaradhi manapriya kamala bhoosevyaa
Ramaaraadhitaa
Kandharpaadiga darpanaasavilasat soundarya deepankuraa
Keeraanaapa vinodini bhagavati kaamya pradhaanaprata
kaamakshi kalaymi kalpalatika
kanchipuri devata

Really appreciate your help!
