This is one of the ancient Tirukkovils with a difference. It acted as an exalted Supreme court that decided many civil cases by subjecting the defaulters to a test of unique type that crowns the truth with total and invincible success and honour never existed anywhere in the world.

The linga is quite unique in possessing the Trimurtis. It is installed in the brightly illumined Garbha Griha. The Moolavar is called Sthanamalayaperumal and is about a foot and a half in height and covered with gold Kavacha. The serenity of the spot, divinity of the linga and austerity of the archakas in performing prayer services draw out devotion to the fullest measure from every devotee and they offer soulful prayer with palms joined and eyes closed. Next to this lies another shrine known as Thakkedam dedicated to Sri Maha Vishnu. The states is 7 feet high and covered with dazzling silver kavacham. His consorts Sridevi and Bhudevi are placed in front. The entire sight recalls to the memory of the Balaji vigraha of Tirupathi. Behind this shrine are installed Amarabhujanga perumal and Suchindraperumal in separate niches. Indeed there are as many as thirty minishrines inside the prakara and it takes hours to visit them all for worshipping. It becomes quite a rewarding experience to see the paintings on the inner walls of the gopuram. Many episodes that occurred in this place are painted with minute details, and as such they recreate the glory of this divya kshetra. Among the images of the most worshipful gods, the eighteen - foot -high icon of Anjaneya in standing posture beckons attention and wrings veneration. The sculptural wealth of this place is infinitely great and its craftsmanship is exceedingly superb. Legends are many and it is said that Indra was redeemed of his sin of deceiving Ahalya after penance and prayers to this Lord. Several highest celestials worshipped this Lord on occasions numerous.

It lies 10 km off Nagercoil on thery to Kanyakumari and is accessible by bus and train.
