This is a famous Mahakshethram. The temple is on a hill top where the Swayamboo Siva is housed in a rather big Sreekovil. Darshan is towards east. Here 3 poojas are offered and 2 Seevelis. There are steps from the eastern and western sides to reach the temple. Even though it is on top of a hill, there is no water scarcity owing to the 2 ponds and a well in the temple premises.
