As there were not many visitors so I could interact with the priests, there is a lamp present in this temple burning from last two hundred years and it consumes a liter of oil per day. The Saligrama Shivalinga present at this place is brought from Gandaki river of Nepal.

Sharadha Devi idol is present right side of Shivalinga. Pooja such as Bilva Archane and Kumkuma Archane will be done to Shivalinga and Sharadha Devi respectively. Even Aksharabhyasam will be done at this place. All these Poojas will be stopped if the number of visitors is more and also there is no rule on money to be paid to priests for performing Poojas, it is devotees wish.

There is only one shop present in front of temple where Pooja ingredients are sold otherwise it is better to carry before visiting this place as there are no alternatives.

Great Picnic spot as one can spend time in the green field in front of temple as this place is free from all kinds of pollution. There are no buses running frequently from Tarikere so better visit by own vehicle or auto-rickshaw.
