Kasi Viswanathar Kondalam is an east-facing temple with an entrance gateway on the east side. The shrines and sanctum sanctorum are situated in a single prakaram. A Nandi Mandapam is in the front. There is a common mandapam before the east-facing sanctum of the main deity and the south-facing shrine of the goddess. The mandapam and sanctum sanctorum is entered through a door in the east and is exited through another door in the south in front of the goddess shrine. The temple has been renovated recently and looks quite well maintained. There are a few other temples nearby including one for Lord Vishnu and one each for Goddesses Angalamman and Mariamman. The Cauvery River flows about 200 meters away in the south with an irrigation canal running between the temple and river. Before the Kasi Viswanathar Kondalam temple the Cauvery that is flowing north to the south turns towards the east and after the temple turns towards northeast, thus flowing on three sides of the temple. The entire place looks very beautiful.
