But only the one in front of the main deity is normally open. The temple is situated in a single Prakaram. The shrine of the goddess is a separate one facing east. The sanctum sanctorum has a small Maha Mandapam and Ardha Mandapam in front. The shrine of Ayyappa is a separate later addition. The Prakaram has plenty of trees and is overgrown with plants.
