Atop the hill, there are shrines for Siva and Brahma. Old Kotappagudi lies on the Rudrasikharam, and the new one on Brahmasikharam. With a view to install Jyothilinga here, Brahma did penance, propitiating Lord Siva, who blessed him with the fulfilment of desire. And that is installed on the Brahmasikharam. It is here Dakshinamurti meditated and gave Brahmopadesam to gods. There is another shrine called Papavinasanaswamy on the Vishnusikharam. Very near to it lies a tank that confers merit, if bathed in the month of Maghamasa. There are many temples to the south of new Kotiswaralayam-one for Gananatha, another for Salankeewara, and yet one more for Santanakoteswara. There is a belief current that barren couple beget children if they offer devout prayers to this deity. Among the holy traditions observed here, tonsorial operation merits mention, and after taking bath in the river called Omkar, devotees proceed to temples to offer prayers.
