Hyagrivar Nanganallur is a small but popular temple twin towers (3 tiered and single tiered) at the entrance. The temple faces east. A temple car has also been made in recent times. The lord and his consort have one eye on each other and one on the devotees, embracing each other. Hyagriva is the horse faced form of Lord Vishnu. He is associated with good education, and along with the goddess they represent good matrimony, and is thus a very important temple. Festivals and events are happening throughout and the entire place has a lively atmosphere.
