The speciality of the temple is that Lord Muruga faces the shiva temple which is located in Chettikulam village. Lord Dhandayuthapani idol is 4 feet tall holding a sugarcane with 11 parting lines called kanukkal, a form no where available in Muruga temples.

Dhandayutapaani who appeared as a Siddhar here is enshrined in a hill temple in the vicinity. The Lord Muruga Idol has Uchhi Kudumi(Tuff of Hair on top of Head). Also his darsan is in the Aandikola form. So Chettikulam Balathandabani Temple also known as Aandikola Murugan Temple.
