A visit to Adi Subrahmanya Temple, situated in proximity of Subrahmanya Temple, is recommended to tourists if they have time at hand. Valmmika, referred as an anthill, is placed inside the sanctum of the temple. The prehistoric anthills are prayed in the form of Adisesha and Vasuki. This shrine is bound with beautiful green forests and mountain streams.
As per the folklore, Lord Brahma, known as the cosmic creator, seeked permission for constructing his house at the site from Lord Subrahmanya. The place was the home of Lord Brahma; however, it lost its importance after Lord Yama cursed it. Pilgrims are offered anthills mrittika (earth) as prasad that is known to cure skin diseases.
