Architecture

The temple has been built following the Kerala temple architecture. The architecture of temples in Kerala is different from the other areas in India. The architectural style of the temple follows suit and has an inherent simplicity. The temple has a very distinct style of architecture coupled with a lavish use of wood, stone and metals. The base structure of the temple is made using granite and laterite.

The temple has a square plan and thus a pyramidal roof. The steep and needle like roof is made of wood and is covered with gold-plated copper plates in order to protect the inner skeletal framework from the vigorous monsoons of the western ghats. Recently, a meticulously planned renovation was conducted at the temple to renew the wood carvings and apply methods to protect the architectural components from external physical or climatic adversities.
