The   Windows  carved  from  stone  in  the  arththa
mandapam    are   very  famous  for  and   are  very
artistical  and  will attract the  viewers.  Viewers would
wonder on this specialty of this windows.  The statues of
KulasEkara azwar and ANDAL made of  seppu or  copper are so
wonderfully done that one can keep looking  at them and
plead for blessings  for  ever. The   vimaanam  represents
the  three  pathams   of ashtaakksharam or thiru manthram
and is  constructed in  three  stages  refracting this  3
pathams.  The siRpam  carved on this vimanam and the siRpam
carved on  the  prathaana gopuram are on Ramayan  and  maha
baratha  and  are  of  great artistical  value.  The biggest
attraction  of this vimannam  is  that  the shadow  of  this
vimanam falls within this  vimaanam itself as similar to
tanjore periya koil. This is  a specialty of this vimaanam.
