Outside the sanctum sanctorum, you can see Vaishnavi, Brahma, Nagaraja, Ugranarasimha, Saraswathi, Panchamukhi Ganesha, besides Surya and a reclining Adi Sheshasayi, kindly showering their benevolence to the devotees below. There exists an amazing Udhbhava Huttha at the precincts, which was formed after the platform was constructed!
