The Bairavar temple is at north-west end of the street and faces east. Three barred gates guard this old temple. After the first gate are two Balipeetas. Generally there will be only one Balipeetas for one sanctum. It is good that this Bairava has been provided two Balipeedas otherwise he will be demanding everyone as he asked for Siralam from seruthondan, three dogs, one leaved spear and Nagas among dense bushes, all can seen.
Bairava stands near a dog with four hands and protruding tusks. With all that he does not look fierce.
The rear of Periyanayaki temple is seen even from the middle of the north car street. Residential houses fill the gap.
