He is, however, enshrined in regular worship at Srivanchiyam and granted preference.

The whole temple complex has a strong granite structure which signifies the construction of Chozha.

The Temple is regarded as being on par with Kasi. The most sacred and similar to Varanasi are said to be six places on the banks of the river Cauvery: Thiruvengadu, Tiruvaiyaru, Sayavanam, Mayuram, Thiruvidaimarudur and Srivanchiyam.

Srivanchiyam is one-sixteenth more holy of these than Kasi (Varanasi). Both four Saivite Saint Poets worship the Temple.
