Special pujas are performed in the temple on Fridays in Chithirai month (April-May) and on Mattupongal (Kanum Pongal) day falling almost on April 15 each year.

Temple’s Speciality:

We are surprised to see some idols that are as tall as 21 feet, 41 feet and 77 feet in some temples. But our elders had made a snake idol that is 10 km long. As it is not possible to see this snake idol in complete form at a time, people have to see the head at a point and the tail at a distance of 10 km. This snake deity is worshipped as Naga Kanni – Naga-snake, Kanni-virgin deity in this context.

Opening Time:

The temple is open from 7.00 a.m. to 7.00 p.m. on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays and for a short time in morning and evening in other days.
