The temple is well maintained and there are many beautiful paintings depicting Puranic stories on the roof in the Temple Mandapum by the artist from Mahabaalipuram in Tamil Nadu
The temple is located at the heart of Nadi town and close to the Nadi river. During the recent flood the water level rose over 8 feet in the temple ground and fortunately the main shrines and other shrines were not affected because the mandapum was at a higher elevation.

However, thankfully Thaipoosum festival went on without any difficulties since the rain stopped in time and water was drained few days before.
