The temple car was very heavy 40meter tall and 650 tons and it took days to take it back to the original position. Before 2000, the practise of drawing the temple car during the yearly festival was suspended.then the temple car was modified with hydraulic wheels to ease the movement.

80 kms from Madurai airport, pothighai express train is running from chennai. Afternoon 1 to 3 pm temple closing hours. They offers free lunch based on token system. During Tamil month aadi ( July/August), car festival happens. For Tirupati venkatasalapathy, a garland is sent from here everyday after goddess wears that garland.
