Sculptures seen to the wall

Here in this temple unique feature is, we see to the inner side of compound wall, 27 Boodha Gana Vedalam with their hands lifted up, representing 27 Nakshtram worshiping Lord Murugan.

Here special pooja is performed on day of Ashtami Thithi which comes after full-moon day. This day is considered important for Bairavar worship. Bairavar is the only person who can control Vedalam

There is a belief among people residing in that region, by worshipping Lord Bairavar on Ashtami Thithi; their wishes are conveyed by Lord Bairavar to Lord Arumugan. There wishes are fulfilled by Lord Arumugan.

We see Nava Vinayakar worshipped by Navagrahas outside the temple.

Arunagiri Nadhar sang Thirupugazh on Lord Murugan.
