There is a garuda mandapam and Dwajasthambam before the Mukha Mandapam. There is also an installation of many lances and tridents in the front. Ver strangely there are both Garuda and Nandi idols on top of the walls of the mandapam. The main deity is in a standing posture with his consorts Sreedevi and Bhoodevi. The main deity is about 4 feet tall. There is a lingam-like stone installed in front of the main deity.
