Where it is just the Thaayar in the Alinganam posture. Hence, the lord is referred to as Kalyana Lakshmi Narasimhar. The temple is facing East direction and has two entrances, one in the South and the other in the East and built in Vijayanagar style of architecture.

There are 14 inscriptions, seven in the sanctum sanctorum of the Lakshmi Narasimha Perumal shrine, six in what remains of the basement of the Andal shrine and one at the entrance of the Raja gopuram. Of these, Archaeologists consider those in the Andal shrine basement as more ancient and belonging to the period of Kulothunga Chola-I and Vikrama Chola-I. The Chola inscriptions stands evidence that the temple even survived the Saivism wave that took effect under the Cholas in the early period like many other important Vaishnavite temples that survived it in South India in the early period. The 12 stone inscriptions that are found in the temple dates back to the Vijayanagar period describe about the glorious past of temple and the Emperors. Most of the inscriptions belong to the reign of Emperor Achutha Deva Maharaya describing about the donations and renovating construction led by his government at the temple. In those five important inscriptions belong to the years of A.D. 1533, 1534 and 1536 which are some of the important years of his rule.

The utsava mandapam in front of the Maha mandapam is full of pillars, with intricate carvings. The kalyana mandapam, to the north of the main shrine in the outer prakaram, is a superb structure containing many fine sculptures. The different incarnation of the lord are found sculpted on the pillars. The ceiling of the mandapam also contains images of dancing women and musical instruments.
