Specialty of the temple
It is said that praying at this temple would be equal to praying at all the 108 divyadesams. Lord Vishnu is present in the temple in the form of Lord Rama with a bow. Garuda is found in a unique posture with conch and discus (shanku and chakra). Visiting the temple is said to cure devotee’s eye related problems. Neetra deepam is lit throughout the day in the main sanctum. Since Thirumangaiazhwar saw Lord Vishnu as Rama here, Sita devi and Lakshaman are not there with the Lord here. The pasuram of the temple reflects that the needs of the devotees are fulfilled faster here. Thirumanjanam is performed only to the Utsava moorthy in the temple.
