Lord Shiva is a swayambumurthi in the shape of an anthill presiding over Deity. Since no abishek with liquid products could be done, only a punugu paste (a cosmetic paste) is provided-punugu chattam in Tamil.

Earlier the place was dense with Mullai plants – which belonged to the jasmine family – from which the Shivalinga was created. Those scars are still evident on the Linga, as the plants covered the Linga.

The place has been considered a place of protection for pregnant women since days of yore. Lord and Mother shield these women from any issues such as abortion, and ensure that the child is born safely.
