The temple is located at the foot of the hill and strangely enough it resembles conch-sankhu. It has all the essential parts and the Siva linga is quite big and lifts the soul, when visitors come into his sight. The peculiarity discernable here is everything of the tree, like leaves, fruit resembles Sivalinga.

Mother Parasakti's mandir is found to the western side of Kutralanathar and she is found in yoga posture, so she is popularly called Yogapeetha Nayaki. And the peetha is going by the name of Dharanipeetha. The temple has four dwaras and it is believed that the four Vedas enter through each one to worship this august Kutralanathar. Hence the apt name Vedanayaki. There are two more shrines one for Kulalvai Mouliammai and another for Parasakti.

In addition to these, as the water of the falls is saturated with aushadhis-roots of medicinal plants, it cures all skin diseases. Hence unusual craze for bath. Rainy season sees its glory reaching the zenith. A visit-worthy place of eternal importance.

It lies about 5 km. off Tenkasi, a pilgrim centre accessible by four  wheelers.
