Here are a few snaps from the perumal temple
There are exquisite carvings of the main deities Azhagiya Venkatesa perumal and Soundaravalli thayar. There is also a rare sculpture of Vishnu with thayar up to the bust level recently uncovered here.
The temple was opened and a tour given by the village youth. The place where this temple stands is called patchapalayam .
Just across the road the place is aadhanur and the dilapidated Shiva temple was seen in a bad shape. The presiding deities are Arunachaleshwara as a majestic lingam and the ambal in the inner praharam Abithakuchalambal
