Specialty of the temple

Lord Narasimhar here appears as Shantha moorthy and has a smiling face.

In the temple, Mahalakshmi in the lap of Narasimhar is facing the devotees and blessing them..In case of Ugra Narasimhar temples, Mahalakshmi is seen facing the lord trying to pacify the lord's anger.

The posture of Narasimhar and Mahalakshmi is called "Paraspara Alinganman" meaning both of them are embracing each other as compared to other temples where only Mahalakshmi appears in an embracing posture.

Garudan here has 16 types of snakes around and hence the devotees are freed of naga dosham.

Anjeneyar's tail is above the head in the sannadhi right opposite the temple.
