The temple is on a small hillock on the Kelambakkam-Vandaloor route and easily accessible. The presiding deities are Veera Anjeneya and Ramar with Lakshman and Seeta. There are about 108 steps to the temple from the base and it can be accessed by vehicle also to the top. The climb to the top is very scenic and beautiful with greenery all over. Anjeneya is said to be very powerful here as it is believed that this is the place where the lord stopped over for doing sandhya vandanam while carrying the sanjeevani hill.
