Lord Venugopala graces in a shrine opposite of Lord Adikesava with Mothers Rukmini and Satyabhma facing south. There is a cow behind the Lord with two heads on both sides.
The significance of the temple lies in the harmony between Saivism and Vaishnavism. While Lord Shiva graces in the name of Sangameswara, Lord Vishnu graces as Adikesava on left of Shiva. In between them grace Mothers Vedavalli Thayaar and Soundaravalli Thayar, as if the Lords play a security to Mothers. Prayer to Lords Shiva and Vishnu and Mothers in this form will bring unity among the couples ensuring their happiness in life, according to belief.
There are two Rajagopurams in the temple in north and south common to both temples. This is a rare temple structure offering darshan of Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu to devotees simultaneously. This is one among the 7 sacred places in the Kongu region. It is the belief that the four Vedas – Rig, Yajur, Sama and Atharvana – came into being in this place and the Lords are in the form of Vedas.
This is the place of confluence of three rivers – Cauvery, Bhavani and the mythical Amirtha. Hence, the place has the reputation as Triveni of South. People bathe in the confluence point for relief from sins and for salvation. People gather in large numbers to perform Tarpan to ancestors. Special pujas are performed to Lord on New moon and full moon days.
