About the temple
The presiding deity is Sri Kothanda ramar in standing posture with Sita and Lakshmanan. There are two utsavars in the temple..one being Sri Rama and the other being Sri Karunaakara perumal. While going in search of Sita, Sri Rama met Vibandaka rishi and had stayed here on the rishi's request. The rishi and Lord Rama had prayed to Karunakara perumal before Sri Rama left and Sri Rama had promised the rishi to give darshan along with Sita. So, while returning back to Ayodhya Sri Rama gave darshan along with Sita and Lakshmanan to Vibandaka rishi.
