The main deity, Soundarya Narayana Perumal, holding the Conch and Disc in his upper hands is a small one. His lower right hand is blessing devotees and the left hand is resting on his waist. On either side are his consorts Sreedevi and Bhoodevi. Some murals from the Vijayanagar period are visible fainlty in the inner walls of the Sanctum Sanctorum at Soundaraja Perumal Pattarai Perumbudur. A large and majestic stone idol of Lord Vishnu as Azhagiya Perumal with his consorts is in front of the sanctum sanctorum. This idol is said to have been the original main deity of Soundaraja Perumal Pattarai Perumbudur. In another shrine is Lord Narasimha seated in Padmasana, which is rather rare to find.

There are several stone inscriptions in Soundaraja Perumal Pattarai Perumbudur on the base of the South, West and Northern walls of the sanctum. These are mostly Tamil stone inscriptions belonging to the Chola and Vijayanagara dynasties. An inscription during the reign of Kulottunga Chola II (12th Century CE) mentions the sale of land by the Mahasabha (administrative organisation of villages in the Chola period). Another Chola inscription mentions a gift of tax-free lands for conducting the procession and for the sacred bath on holy occasions of the deity. There are two Vijayanagara inscriptions dated 1430 AD and 1457 AD at Soundaraja Perumal Pattarai Perumbudur.
