The entire temple is dilapidated in various stages, but the temple is in worship. The shiva Lingam is a tall idol. There are many broken idols including Muruga, Ganesha and Nandi. The goddess shrine is facing south but the idol had been removed, maybe for renovation. A long line of beautiful elephant carvings is found on top of the wals of the inner Prakaram. A large temple tank is found south of the temple.
