The temple has a procession deity for Lord Dakshinamurthy with four disciples.  On the first Thursday of each month, He comes to the shrine of Main Dakshinamurthy.  Yellow threads placed in the puja are offered as Prasad to devotees.  There are separate shrines for Lord Kala Bhairava and Sani Baghwan.  Ekadasa Rudra Parayanam is observed to Lord Bhairava on the first day of Karthikai-November-December.  Guru puja is observed for all 63 Nayanmars.  There is also shrine for Nagar the Serpent deity to whom milk abishek is performed with sweet pudding-sarkarai pongal by those facing adverse aspects of serpent planets delaying their marriages.  There are also shrines for Panchalingas, Gajalakshmi, Saraswathi, Aiyappan, Nayanmar and Santhanacharyas.
  Temple History:
  Val Vil Ori was ruling this region having Kolli Hills as his headquarters.  He was noted for his loving and charitable characters.  A skilled warrior, he was a staunch Shiva devotee.  While on hunting a day, he could not spot a single animal.  Tired king spotted a white swine and shot an arrow.  The animal ran and the king chased it.  The swine hid in a bush.  When the king removed the bush he found a Shivalinga.  He also found the linga bleeding on the forehead hit by his arrow.  He fell at the feet of the Lord.  Lord Shiva granted darshan and said that he only came in the guise of the animal.  Ori built the temple then here.
