icon and around the garbha griha there are many rare sculptures like
Valmiki, Dampathi Dakshinamurti etc. To its left, in a separate
minishrine there lies Valmikeswara linga, and just opposite there is
installed another Sivalinga too. With many such unique features it
is drawing the theists and art critics throughout the year. As
everything is here enchanting, wearing an aura of oddity in
divinity, visitation of this Aalayam - the only one of its kind in
India affords an elevating experience and confers solace that
remains in the hearts for ever. Its vast courtyards and beautifully
sculptured icons are worthy of visitation and obeisance.
