Specialities of the temple

Specialty of this temple is that thayar has a separate sannadhi as compared to other malai naadu divyadesam in Kerala. Lord Navamukudan can be seen only from the portion above knees. The lord is also called Nava narayanan since it is believed that nine sadhus prayed to Lord Vishnu here and attained moksha. It is considered equal to Varanasi since temples of the three lords- Vishnu, Brahma and Shiva are present here. Maasi Makam is an important festival here.

Pushkarni and Vimanam

The pushkarni here is full of lotus flowers and hence known as sengamala saras, sengamala meaning lotus.

The vimanam here is known as veda vimanam, derived from the vedic knowledge of the nine sadhus who worshipped here.
