A unique feature of this temple is a drop of water falls on the Lingam (Main Diety) exactly every twenty four minutes from the roof of the Vimanam. Two stones “Suryagaanthakkal”(sun stone) and “Chandragaanthakkal” ( moon stone) are placed at strategic points above the Vimana. These 2 stones absorb moisture from the atmosphere, convert into 1 water droplet, performing a natural Abhishegam to the diety, every 24 minute. Another special here is that the “Guru Bhagavan” has a temple inside this temple itself. This is probably the only temple where Guru Bhagavan has a separate Sanctum and separate Vimana between Vasishteswarar and Loganayaki sanctums.
Maha Kumbhabahishekam of this temple was held on 15 July 2013.
|The Vimanam above the Sanctum Sanctorum - can you see the stone at the base of Kalasam ? This is probably the moon stone.|
