Worship at the temple is centered on Shiva and Vishnu, the presiding deities of two dominant streams in the Hindu ritualistic tradition. The temple, built and designed in South Indian - Dravidian architecture, attempts to bring the two streams together and provide a synthesis. It has also earned a place amongst the renowned Hindu temples across the globe. The temple is housed with close to 32 Gods and Goddesses from several Hindu traditions.
