This Badrakali Amman Temple is situated amidst a cool coconut grove. The first idols that greet the visitor here are that of Lord Ayyanar and of his horse. The idol of the horse has protruding teeth and bulging eyes and Lord Ayyanar is shown with a fierce look. These two together really make the visitors tremble in fright. The height of the horse is 30 ft, which wears a garland of lemons.
