Sri Bala Veera Anjaneya graces from His own shrine on the west of the northeast side where six monkeys attained Samadhi.  A Nandhi with its two legs folded and drawing its tongue in is performing penance in front of Lord Nallur Nadhar shrine which looks very live.  Lords Valampuri Vinayaka, Bala Murugan and a five hooded serpent shrine are on the western side.  The place is revered as a holy land where Siddhas lived.


The devotees strongly believe that participating in the Yaga Pujas performed according to Siddha procedures from sun set to wee hours of the next day would bring a solution to the various problems they face as delay in wedding proposals and childless worries and relieve them from the impact of all evil effects.

Thanks giving:
  Realizing their wishes, devotees offer abishek and new vastras to Mother Amman. 
 Greatness Of Temple:
  In days of yore, Siddhas established schools and researched on medicine, developed Maantrika skills and performed miracles in this place, once a dense forest.  Even today, it is believed that the soil, water and air have their medicinal qualities.  People believe that many Siddhas are still living in this place invisibly in many forms.  It is also believed that Indira the king of Devas bathed in one of the tanks here and was relieved from the curse of a woman.  Devotees can worship both Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva in this temple.  There are two sanctum sanctorums for Mother Paal Mozhi Amman.  The temple feeds hundred of Sadhus staying in the temple thrice a day  
  Temple History:

This is a holy land where Devas, Sages and Siddhas worshipped in large numbers thousands of years ago.  Now, the temple stands dilapidated due to nature’s fury.  It is surprising that the Sanctum Sanctorum is still in tact protected by the roots of the Itchi tree.  It is also said that a Sadhu, Tirumurugan by name had stayed here under the Itchi tree for many years and was fed with milk by a woman when he fainted due to hunger.  She also advised him to remove the sand hill and disappeared.  The Sadhu did it with his hands and found the Mother in Her sanctum Sanctorum and was granted darshan.  The sanctum sanctorum is protected even now by the roots of the Itchi tree.  With the hard work and efforts of the Sadhu, a beautiful temple arose then.
