As we know, pa~ncaayatana pUja is around pUjanam of of "Adityam,
Ambikam,Vishnum, Gananatham, Maheswaram"
This pa~ncaayatanam is named as Siva pa~ncaayatanam or Sakthi
pa~ncaayatanam or Vishnu pa~ncaayatanam or Aditya pa~ncaayatanam or
Ganesa pa~ncaayatanam depending upon which 'murthi' occupies the
central location (Ref: Proceedings of 'Vyasa Vidwat Sadas, convened by
Kanchi Sri Mahaswami, at Narayanapuram, Madurai, Tamilnadu 1963)
In Siva pa~ncaayatanam , Siva is throned at the center, Aditya at
Southeast, Gananatha at the Southwest, Ambika at the Northwest and
Vishnu at the Northeast.
I am not sure of the positionings in other pa~ncaayatana pUjas.
Also may I add that Kanchi Sri Mahaswami mentions that Kanchi Mata
pUja is around Siva pa~ncaayatanam (Ref: Page 141, 'Deivatin Kural'
, Part II, Vanathi Publishers, 9th Edition,
