 General Information:
  There are two types of worships called Aga Vazhipadu – worshipping silently with mind set on God with determination without any diversion – and Pura Vazhipadu –worshipping God outwardly with eyes fixed on a portrait or idol.  In the temple worship system Aga Vazhipadu means worshipping the presiding deity first and going round the other deities in the prakara then.  Pura Vazhipadu means worshipping the other deities in the prakara and coming finally to the presiding deity.  This temple is designed for Pura Vazhipadu.  The devotee goes round from Mother Ambica shrine and towards Lords Nava Vinayaka, Muruga, Dakshinamurthi, Raja Ganapathy, Bhairava, Vishnu, Mother Gajalakshmi and Sun, Sani Bhagwan and reaches finally Lord Vyakrapureeswara.

Devotees pray here for wedding boon and removal of obstacles in the way, education and child boon.

Thanks giving:
  Devotees perform abishek to Lord and Mother and offer Vastras. 
 Greatness Of Temple:
  The penance spot of Lord Muruga in the temple is in a hexagonal shape in the prakara.  Lord Muruga is sitting on a Lotus with one leg folded and the other stretched.  He does not have His Vel weapon or His peacock with Him.  Generally we have seen Lord Muruga either in an ascetic or royal style in temples.  This penance style is rare.
The other different feature in this temple is Lord Ganapathy is before the presiding deity.  Lord Dakshinamurthi is in Arthanareeswara for – half male, half female.   Instead of a Navagraha shrine, there are nine Vinayakas.  Against the usual tradition of two Dwarapalakas on either side of the sanctum sanctorum, there is only one and Vinayaka is on the other side.  The rays of Sun fall on the presiding deity in the evenings and pujas are very devotionally performed at this time.  The Vanni tree is 800 years old.
The structure of the temple is such that shrines are built opposite to each other.  For example, Lord Vinayaka shrine is opposite of Shiva shrine and Kalabhairava shrine opposite of Lord Muruga shrine.  Mother Mahalakshmi shrine is just opposite of Lord Vishnu.
  Temple History:

Divine cow Kamadenu was late to attend the court of Indira.  He cursed it to be born as an ordinary cow on earth.  Kamadenu came to earth and sought the advice of Sage Kabila who was on penance here.  He said that it should carry Ganga water in its ears each day for abishek to Lord Shiva a swayambumurthi in this place.  Kamadenu was worshipping Shiva as advised by the sage.  Once, when Kamadenu was thus going for the worship, Lord Shiva, to test its determination, intercepted in the guise of a tiger threatening to kill and eat it.  Kamadenu calmly told the wild cat to wait for a while till it returned after its Shiva puja.  The cow returned as promised.  Shiva pretended as if to kill it but granted darshan with Mother Uma and asked its wish.  Kamadenu begged the Lord that He should be merciful to all those approaching Him for any relief as He was to it.  The cow also begged the Lord to bless all in the name of Vyakrapureeswarar.  Vyakram in Sanskrit means tiger.
