"It is one of the oldest temples. constructed from 11th Century onwards and the various parts constructed right till 19th century. It is perhaps the only place where Brahma, Siva, Vishnu appeared together in one place, consecrated as YhanuMalAyan at this temple. Beware of pundits who are out to make money off tourists. Buy Rs. 10/- booklet available on the history of the temple, this is sufficient to see the temple"
