The previous Mahakumbhabhishekams held on 04.06.1973 and 03.09.1992 have been carried out without any refurbishment to the temple premises. Now the renovation is planned in a grand scale and all efforts are being done to perform Mahakumbhabhishekam in a grand scale. Towards this, since 04.05.2008 ‘Parivara moorthys’ sannadhi have been closed for refurbishment. The grand five level Raja Gopuram is nearing completion with the works started since 2005. To preserve the traditions the Rajagopuram has been sculpted in ancient style and proudly houses a ‘Stone Chain’ made out of a Single Stone.
Thirupanni Expenses for 1 Crore incurred from temple fund and the balance 6 Crore collected through donations. The total amount comes to 7 Crore. The Mahakumbhabhishekam and the Thirukuda Naneerattu Perunshanthi was held grandly on 07-07-2014 in the morning 09.00 to 10.30 am.
