The temple, which is devoted to Lord Ganesha and is constructed in the Dravidian architectural style, exudes a tranquil, meditative atmosphere. When the temple was built in 1500 AD, its 6-foot-tall and 3-foot-diameter Ganesh deity was positioned within. A mythical tale that has been handed down from one generation to the next is about the deity. Legend has it that while transporting the idol from Madurai for installation, the cart axle broke, leading to the construction of the temple.
The temple hosts a great celebration on the deity's birthday every year, inviting thousands of believers and travellers. Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated with much pomp and pageantry here.
