The architecture of the temple is a mere resemblance of Meenakshi Temple in Madurai. Not only the inner side of the temple and the statue of the idol is an attraction here, but also its outside walls decorated with legendary characters are something to take pride in. There are certain interesting features of Annapurna Devi Temple like

  • There are three shrines of Shiva, Hanuman and Kalabhairava.
  • Tourists are greeted by four full sized elephants, which embrace the temple’s decorated gates.
  • The huge Krishna Mandir inside the complex.
  • The pictorial depiction of Krishna Leela on the temple walls.
The temple is not only meant for religious travellers, but also for those who wish to imbibe the skills of ancient Indian art and the predominance of Hindu religion.
