holy shrine bears striking resemblance to the Vaikatappan temple at
Vaikom in its vastness and constructional designs, but differs in
one aspect - it is built at a lower level, say about four or five
feet below the road level. The plinth area rises above a hollow
ground far below the surroundings. The Srikoil is also circular in
shape and adorned with a conical roof covered with copper plates and
shining Kalasam atop.
