Amaneeswarar Devanampalayam is an ancient west facing temple. A monolith Dwajasthambam is on the west. A beautiful east facing Vinayaka along with Naagar is under a sprawling peepal tree on a platform south of the sanctum. If you have time this platform is an ideal place to spend long hours meditating or just relaxing. The surroundings are quiet and beautiful. To the south of the sanctum a little further away is Muruga with consorts, all three represented as just stones, with a small peacock facing them. Outside and facing Muruga under another peepal tree are A Chera King and his Queen with a single piece of stone carved with Saptamadar. The stone has probably broken and the two pieces have been installed on both sides of the king and queen. A recent looking idol of the same king and queen is also found installed outside the main sanctum sanctorum. Amaneeswarar Devanampalayam is located on the banks of a wide stream and should present a wonderful sight when in flow.
