It is the most outstanding landmark seen from miles off and makes the devotees bend their heads in Prayer at its very sight.  The vimana over the garbhagriha is built in the shape of Omkar, which recalls the glory of Hinduism at a mere look.  Among the six rominent plus points of this  yugasold shrine, like Vedasringa sikhara, Chanarapushkarini, Ponnavriksha.  Bhujangasayana, Dahkshinatrimukha mandapa, the Pranavakrita tower tops the list and by its loftiness and majesty it is broadcasting to the world its sanctity unique and sublimity pre-eminent.
