The temple has a beautiful tank at its base, an Angala Parameswari temple which is a kula deivam for many, huge trees and a Vinayagar temple against the backdrop of the hillock temple of Lord Muruga. There are cement benches under the shade of the bigger trees, providing the perfect atmosphere for a picnic. The temple tank is called Sanjeevi Theertham and the water in it is said to cure many diseases. Near the temple tank at the base, there is a Vinayagar temple, housing the 'Parai Vinayagar'. Legend has it that he seems to have appeared naturally there. There are about 100 steps to the hillock temple and also a motorway right to the top of the hillock. The Thaanthondreeswarar temple is located at around a kilometre from here, and is the place where Sage Agasthiar got the dharshan of Lord Shiva and Parvathis’s marriage. The Achiruppakkam temple, this Perumber Kandigai temple and the Thaanthondreeswarar temple nearby are all connected by way of legend. After the completion of the Tamil Chithirai month’s 10th day festival at the Achirupakkam temple, Aatcheeswarar and Ilangili amman will circumambulate this hill on the 11th day. During that time, Lord Murugar with his consorts will come down to the junction of this twin hill to welcome his parents and then take them to the Agasthiar Stage at the nearby Thaanthondreeswarar temple. On the Chithra Pournami or the auspicious Full Moon day, the festival of Lord Shiva giving the dharshan of His marriage to Agasthia Maharishi is celebrated in a grand scale there.
