This unique concept of offering makes the temple a sought after tourist attraction and has also taken the locals by a frenzy. A herbal oncologist, named K. Sridhar is the brain child behind this unique kind of offering. His main ideology was anything which is nutritious and prepared in a clean kitchen with a devote mind can be offered to God and it is not necessary that only traditional dishes are to be offered.

The fast food kitchen at the temple is also certified by the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India which makes it one of the first temples in Tamil Nadu with this certificate. The products made here come with an expiry date just like any other packed food we buy. Visitors have to follow a token system here to get their hands on the goodie boxes. Once you insert the token into the vending machine the prasad comes out.
