  Those concerned with the welfare of children and facing adverse aspects of snake planets pray to Lord Veerabadra for relief.
Thanks giving:
  Realizing their wishes devotees offer garlands of Tulsi, Vilwa, Nagalinga flowers and lime and offer Boli – in some places this is known as Ubbuddu, Karnataka in particular – as nivedhana. 
 Greatness Of Temple:
  Rudrabishekam is offered to Lord on Tuesdays.  On the last Tuesday of Karthikai month – November-December, Alankara to Lord is done with coconut chips.  As Lord Veerabadra appears in a furious form in this temple, this is applied to soften Him.
Sri Anjaneya appears on the right side of Lord’s shrine in the hill.  He worshipped
Veerabadra and has His darshan, according to legends.  Lord Uma Maheswara with Mother Parvathi graces from the shrine left of Sri Veerabadra.  Nandi Deva is holding His Feet.  Lords Vinayaka and Lord Muruga are nearby in a worshipping form.  There are also shrines for Muruga with His consorts Valli and Deivanai, Lord Mahalingam, Mother Parvathi and Lord Vinayaka.  Sun appears on Rath drawn by seven horses in the Navagraha mandap.
  Temple History:
  Daksha, father of Mother Parvathi organized a yajna and failed to invite Lord Shiva his father-in-law intentionally.  When Mother Parvathi questioned his arrogance, he humiliated his own daughter also.  Lord Shiva sent Veerabadra to destroy the Yagna and also drove the Devas invited by Daksha to receive Havirbaga-the benefit of yajna.  Remembering this event, a temple was built here with a Veerabadra idol with 32 hands.  The temple went into ruins in the years followed.
A king, Rayaraya Chola while passing through this place, found an object glittering among the bushes.  Removing them, he found the idol with 32 hands, installed it here and built the temple again.
Special Features:
  Miracle Based: Lord Veerabadra graces facing north. He holds weapons of Lord Shiva and Mother Parvathi as Mazhu, serpent, trident, Bana etc. in His 32 hands. Nandhi is in front of the shrine. Procession deity also has 32 hands.
