The deity has three eyes where it is showed during the “Aarthi”. The entire temple and the deity was constructed from a single rock of the mountain. This is the specialty of the temple. This temple was said to have been constructed by the pallavas.
After the temple visit volunteer and coordinator travelled to blue beach which is located 30 kilometer away from Singa Perumal temple where both Coordinator and volunteer spent time and had one to talk.
