Soundarya Lahari - Part 134

Thus there are several  several deity-forms of ambAL. But, there is only one deity which conforms to the  form of  LalitA-tripura-sundari as delineated in the  ShrIvidyA  tantra with  certain characteristic physical features and arms and weapons and that is the deity ‘KamAkshi’ of Kanchipuram. 

The author of Soundaryalahari who does not mention the name of the deity of his devotion throughout the text, has perhaps hinted it here, by using the word ‘KanchI-dAmA’!
