Balipeedam, Kodimaram, and Garuda Mantapam are in the outer Prakaram facing the entrance to the inner Prakaram. The outer Prakaram is large and has a paved circumambulatory pathway. The sides of the Prakaram are filled with weeds and trees. The inner Prakaram has a long and large Mandapam and has many beautifully carved Yaali Pillars on both sides. This is followed by another Mandapam which has a small gopuram on top. The Ardha Mantapam and Antralaya lead into the Sanctum Sanctorum where the lord is a beautiful Stucco image. An old Muruga temple and a beautiful ancient Shiva temple are in the same village. Outside in the main road going towards Tenkasi is another ancient Shiva Temple.
