Mother Parvathi graces in the temple formless in the sanctum sanctorum, hence there are two towers above.  This is the only temple in this form next to Kasi-Varanasi in India.  It is noteworthy that procession deity Lord Somaskanda does not have His right thumb.  It is said that an angry king cut it when he deposed as a witness in disguise to protect a devotee, according to puranas.  The antiquity of the temple dates back to 1500 years.
