Early to the temple, we had darshan pretty quick, this temple is also quite expansive. Sadly, Gomathi, the elephant was unwell and was kept in a closed enclosure. On the same note, none of the elephants were seen in the temples as they are off to their rejuvenation camp. This is one of the temples where people surrender images of insects, body parts as a part of offering to safeguard one from getting affected. Three parts of the temple are dedicated to sankaralingam, Sankaranarayanar and Gomathi Amman. We can Sankaranarayanar as one half Narayana and other half as Shiva.
