VisheshAs per sthala purana, Shiva plucked out one head of Brahma due to envy. Due to brahmahatthi kapala got stuck to his hand. Lord at this place removed the curse on shiva , hence called Harasapavaimochana Perumal. There are separate temples for brahma and Shiva within 100 mtrs of each other. There is one idol of Chakkarathazhwan with Sri Nrisimha on the backside. Since this is placed at one corner, it is not possible to have dharshan of Nrisimha.
