Prasanna Venkatramanar Pandamangalam is an east-facing temple with a Mukha Mandapam on the entrance on the east side. The Balipeedam, Flagstaff and Garuda Mandapam are on the outer prakaram. This is followed by a 3 tiered gopuram leading inside the inner prakaram which is completely covered. A common large Maha Mandapam is in front of the Sanctum Sanctorum of the main deity. The maha mandapam extends on both sides to cover the passage leading towards the Goddess and Aandal shrines. A tall dwajasthambam with a mandapam in the base is seen outside the temple on the east side adjoining the road. There are carvings of Anjaneya and Garuda in this Dwajasthambam. The presence of this Dwajasthambam at about 60 meters outside the entrance indicates that the Prasanna Venkatramanar Pandamangalam temple could have been quite large in the olden days. A canal called the Raja Vaikkal flows on the west and north sides of the Prasanna Venkatramanar Pandamangalam temple. There is an old Kasi Viswanathar temple on the opposite side.
