  Lord Karivaradharaja graces from the Nagadevi sanctum sanctorum with His Consorts Sridevi and Bhoodevi in a standing form facing west. Devotees offer Tirumanjanam to Perumal seeking rain. Mother Kamalavalli appears in front of the Perumal shrine facing East. Nagadevi graces from a shrine near Kamalavalli. The significance of the temple is that Vilwa attributed to Lord Shiva is the holy tree of the temple. There are two Garudas (the eagle vehicle of Lord Vishnu) in sitting and standing forms. Opposite to this temple is the Kamanadheeswarar temple where Ashta Bhairavas grace the devotees. The devotees have the advantage of worshipping both Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu simultaneously.  
     
  Temple History:
     
  Once, the place was under the rule of a king named Rajarajan. During his rule, the place was very fertile and people were happy. As their prosperity grew, people also grew lethargic and stopped worshipping God. To teach them a lesson, Lord Vishnu directed Varuna-rain God to stop his grace. The region became drought bringing famine and poverty. People began worshipping Vishnu and apologized for their folly. Lord Vishnu, ever merciful, told the people that He was the authority to grace and punish people and advised them not to run mad after material wealth forgetting worship to God. He brought back dark clouds and made the land fertile and prosperous again. The king also apologized to the Lord along with his subjects. The king built the temple, installed Lord Vishnu, named Him Karivaradarajaperumal representing his boon of bringing in dark clouds.
