    Main Deity is Siva lingam known as Visha mangalaeswarar and his consort known as Veera Mangalaeswri / Mangalanayaki amman.

    Importance: The temple is full of speciality and different from other places and it is a small temple. It’s known as vaippu sthalam. There is a big snake pit before, we enter the temple. The place is also known as veeshamteenda pathi which means poison does not affect people living in that place.

    Within the premises we see Surya with his wife, Lakshmi Narayanar, Kalyana Sundareswarar, Subramanya with Valli Devasena, Brahma and Saraswathi. The speciality is all the gods are with their consort.

    Durga is vishnu durgai on lotus peetam with agni in hand. Thadangam of Durgai is different here. Digichandana Dakshina moorhy statue is really good and he is with veena known as Digichandana in his hand. Surya Chandra on top of Dakshinamoothy to either side with chamaram.

    Kalyana Sundareswarar left hand is around his wife holding close to him and thumb of his feet is above the feet of ambal. About ½ kms from this temple, we see Vadha muni stone for which oil abishekam is done on saturday, tuesday, full moonday and half moonday. The oil is distributed as prasadam to devotees. They say applying the oil any type pain subsides.
