the presiding deity of the shrine, is a replica of the Chaturbhuja
Mahavishnu, holding Sankha and Chakra in his two left hands and
Kodanda and rosary in the other hands. The garbhagriha has certain
oddities that set it apart from the rest of shrines for Srirama.
There is an image of Dhakshinamurti facing the South, it common
feature in Siva temples alone. Moreover, the oil lamp hung behind is
kept burning round the clock, signifying that the Mulavirat is
bearing the aspect of Lord Siva also.
to the opinion prevalent, Srirama got the aspect of Lord Siva at the
death of Khara in the war. The Mala which is held in the right hand
fortifies another belief that the archamurthi represents the aspect
of Brahma. From
the symbols it can be deduced that the deity is possessing all the
aspects of Trimurthi - Brahma, Vishnu and Siva.
