Abhimukteeswarar Nemili is a small and ancient temple. The east facing temple does not have a compound wall but is protected and regularly worshiped. The Vimaana seems to be a variation of the Gajaprashta Vimaana, but is much smaller and less grand. On the two sides of the entrance to the Goddess’s shrine are idols of Harabadra and Subadra.
