This reputed thirtha kshetra located amidst green fields and palm grooves bounded by ranges of hills
against the back drop of blue sky, enthralls one and all even from miles around.
It beckons the visitors with its lofty tower measuring 134 feet in height.
This broad tower is embellished in the fore with beautiful images of the Trimurthis with Siva in the centre.
Its architectural grandeur deserves careful study, since many adorable deities of Hindu pantheon are
artistically made and placed at prominent places in and out of this temple too there are many worth
seeing and breathtaking sculptural beauties that detain the aesthetes for hours.
The magnificently carved images
are so artistically made that even the veins on the hands and feet are
visible. Devotees enter through the main porch called Natakasala, whose massive pillars and
imposing ceiling are beautified with figures of Lakshmi, Saraswathi and Gouri.
Crossing the main entrance they reach Unjal Mandapa decorated with soul-lifting
sculptured figures of Manmatha, Rati, Arjuna, Karna on the pillars. Brihaspathi, the Deva guru
greets them next in the shrine dedicated to Dakshinamurthi. Then comes the
Vasantha Mandapam, another exquisite piece of sculpture. It springs a surprise, since the
Navagrahas are carved here on the ceiling and to worship them one has to raise his head and throw it back.
These planets are surrounded by twelve rishis. Down below, on the pedestal will be placed the
utsvamurthis of Suchindra Perumal and Umadevi, when Vasanthotsavam is celebrated.
