Lord Adi Kesava graces from the sanctum sanctorum with His consorts Sridevi and Bhoodevi in a standing form.  Lord Santhanagopala graces in the front mandap with Mothers Rukmini and Satybhama.  Mother Soundaravalli graces from a shrine right of the Lord.  In between is the shrine for Lakshmi Narasimha in a merciful form.


Those facing problems about children’s welfare due to planetary reasons perform Tirumanjanam to Perumal and those seeking child boon offer a nivedhana made of a particular cereal called Pasi Paruppu.

Thanks giving:
  Realizing their wishes, devotees offer Tulabararm – offering something equal to their body weight. 
 Greatness Of Temple:

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.

  Temple History:

Kubera, the Lord of wealth, came down to earth to protect himself from the wrath of Shukra, Guru of demons.  While passing through this place, he was surprised to see a tiger, lion, elephant, deer, cow, snake and a rat – all having contradicting qualities – were eating their food peacefully without enmity against one another.  He also found Gandharvas, Maharshis and Devas performing penance without harming the creatures.  The sacred environment drove Kubera to penance on both Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu and was happy to have their darshan simultaneously.  He begged the Lords that that their joint darshan should be available to all devotees on earth.  Lords granted the boon to Kubera and stayed here for the benefit of devotees.
