The main deity of the temple is Lord Mahadeva installed in the form of Linga idol surrounded by other deities namely Swayambhoo Sastha, Mannadi Bhagavathi, Mahaganapathi and other Updevathas (sub-deities) such as Bhoothathan, Rakshas, Yakshi and Nagaraja. Due to the presence of Mahadeva and Sastha idols in the temple , there are two Dhwajas (towering flag posts coated with copper) adjacent to each other which is a rare spectacle seldom seen in other temples. The Mahasiva idol and the Sastha idols are installed facing each other in this temple . The sanctum sanctorum of Lord Mahadeva was constructed in a circular manner and bears testimony to the fineness of ancient Kerala sculpture as in other prominent Shiva temples of Kerala. The artistically decorated towering Gopurams on the east and west Nada and the Anakkottil (waiting area for elephants during the festival ceremony) are indeed rare specialties.
