The temple has six daily rituals at various times from 5:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., and twelve yearly festivals on its calendar.

The temple is believed to be of significant antiquity with contributions at different times from Medieval CholasVijayanagar Empire and Madurai Nayaks. The temple is enshrined within a granite wall and the complex contains all the shrines of the temple. The Rajagopuram (the main gateway) has five tiers. Parimala Ranganathar is believed to have appeared for Chandra, the moon god.

The temple is maintained and administered by the Hindu Religious and Charitable Institutions Endowment Board of the Government of Tamilnadu.
