The temple has certain unique features - the, rbhagriha is surrounded by mud walls and has a thatched roof over it.  Behind it lie anthills, where live cobras move about freely at all times but within the fence as a matter of fact.  No case of death by serpent - bite in the precincts is recorded so far, nor fear of moving about is the campus is entertained by any.  Secondly, sand is the only prasada distributed to the adorers and it is scooped out from the ground, where the image of the deity is enshrined.  Elaborate prayers with several rituals are offered every day and there, is heavy rush always.

On Sundays the spacious courtyards and campus are seen over flowing with zealous adorers, coming from far off places too. Milk offering is very common and it is invariably done by the visiting devotees.  Avani month attracts thousands of devotees, and from among them women form majority. There are mini-shrines for Krishna and Siva inside the temple.  

The annual festival celebrated in the month of Thai is a big draw when the whole town goes gay for days. There is a big garden in the compound with many trees and shrubs where Naga flowers - symbolic representation of Naragaja are grown in abundance.  It lies just at 7 Km from Suchindram situated on the main road to Kanyakumari, it commands conveyance facilities round the clock.  Hence visitation by large numbers.
