SIMHACHALAM

One of the pillars in the Mukhantantapa of the temple is named Kappam Stambham or the pillar of tribute. This attracts large number of pilgrims, since the popular belief is that this pillar has the power of curing cattle disease, and also barrenness among women.

The image of the deity in the shrine is overcovered with a thick coating of sandal paste, which is said to have appeased the fury of the Lord after the destruction of Hiranyakasipu. This coating is removed only once a year, on the Visaka day in May, and that day is considered to, be specially sacred, and people from all over the country visit the shrine to have Darshan of the Lord on this day.
