We were really fortunate to worship in this great temple. The architectural beauty of this temple is par excellence. The main dirty is Lord Shiva. Parvati in the form of Akhilandeswari is also worshipped here.

The temple is huge and sparsely crowded. The swami is viewed through nine holes. The Ambal sannadhi was just opening when we went. The song sung by the priest was very melodious and memorable. Overall a great humbling experience.
