sacred shrine though embodying several uniques, is neither huge in dimensions,
nor rich in possession of properties. The temple property is indeed
comparatively limited, although its spiritual superiority and imperial
sovergnity are unmatched and unprecedented. Its inner grandeur outshines the
outer adornments. It is modest in size, yet, possesses all the requisites.
Although it has a modest prakara and gopuram, the courtyard is vast and the
Srikoil too is extremely beautiful.
The garbhagriha is quadrangular in shape and
is surrounded by two roofs and the whole structure has a pyramidal roof. Just
opposite this imposing Srikoil lies the Namaskaramandapa built with sloped roof
and two projecting gables at the end. Here one finds certain, oddities -
this temple has no flag staff and the Srikoil is adorned with only one stupi,
whereas the Namaskara mandap has three. The Balikal is roofless, bur is
embellished by a strange figure, with a stranger face evoking strangest guesses,
if examined to fix its form. There stands in front of the balikkal a small
rectangular building adorned with a pyramidal roof. And it is another oddity
that greet the eyes.
