If time permits, tourists can visit the Maruleshwara Temple that is renowned for its huge Shiva Lingam. Constructed by the Ganaga Kings, the Shiva Lingam inside the temple is believed to be enshrined by Lord Brahma. It is one of the five temples that pilgrims throng to see during the Panchalingadarshana.
Upon reaching the Maruleshwara Temple, pilgrims would get the chance to see idols of Thirumal, Veerabadhrar, Maheswara, Shanmugar, Ambigai, Navagrahams, Ganapathi and Surya. This pilgrimage site is located in the proximity of an ancient temple of Keerthi Narayana that is dedicated to Lord Vishnu.
