Lord Shiva is worshipped here in the form of Mahakuteshwara. There is a fresh water pond in the main courtyard called Vishnu Pushkarni. It is believed that this pond was constructed by sage Agastya. A lingam is seen on the pond's margin. The entrance is under water and in the pond there is a chhatri containing a four- faced image of Lord Brahma. In the sanctum there is a Lingam that is surmounted by a storeyed tower with an octagonal domed roof. The basement has some of the best carvings that include intricate work of figures from the Hindu epics. Large images of Lord Shiva are seen on the walls.
