The temple trust also encourages music and dance concerts, and during festival days, music and dance concerts also would be held in this temple. Apart from the shrines of the Tridevi, shrines for Sri Vinayagar, Sri Murugar, and Navagrahas are also present in this temple.
Tridevi are also considered as famous deities, since without the Shakti element, the Trimurti cannot function independently. Tridevi contain half of the powers of the Trimurti, and they show more love and affection on their devotees, than that of the Trimurti, since Tridevi act as the divine mother for all of their devotees. At the present Kaliyuga, without keeping bhakti on the deities, we would not be able to run our life smoothly. Hence let us visit this wonderful temple at least once in our life time, and let us be blessed.
