They are holy shrines in the proximity of this sacred origin. The shrine dedicated to Viswanatha resembles the shrines of North India; the presiding deity is called Viswanatha. In addition to the august Sivalinga, there are many adorable images of Vinayaka, Dandapani, Dundi Vigneswara, Kalabhairava besides Mother Visalakshi - all wrought in stone and are majestic and soul lifting, when viewed and worshipped. With the assemblage of all these deities here at one place has given it the honorific name of this kshetra as Dhakshanakasi. There is another shrine called Saktalaya, where the Akhandajyoti is installed. It burns throughtout the year - all the 365 days, without a break for any reason what so ever. Will the eternal lamp ever prefer a holiday? Does it require an eight-hour shift? If preferred, well the whole world plunges into darkness to perish. Another object that attracts the visitors is the Aswarthavriksha with a niche for Aswartanarayana. People circumambulate it after taking bath. Just above, at about 150 feet high there lie seven kundas where Saptarishis performed yagnas in the dim past after penance. The association of several luminaries of both legends and histories sanctifies it.
