The temple is more famous as Navagraha temple in this area and was blessed by the Kanchi Mahaperiyavaa . The Navagrahas were sculpted in Mysore and were installed here about 80 years ago. The peculiarity of this navagraha installation is that the Navagrahas are present in a separate hall with their consorts and the Rasi if each Navagraha is sculpted below. It is a very famous parihara sthalam.
