Shiva temples are generally facing east, Avudaiyarkoil temple is facing
south. As Lord Shiva plays the Guru part teaching Saint Manikkavasakar as Lord Dakshinamurthy, the temple is facing south, it is explained. The other Shiva temple facing south is Lord Kadambavana Nathar temple in Karur. Surprisingly, the temple does not have Nandi, flagstaff, Balipeedam, and Somaskandar are conspicuously absent as both Lord and Mother are formless. And instead of playing Nadaswaram, Melam, and Berigai, the blowing of conch, ringing of bell and Thiruchinnam is in vogue.

Contrary to the traditional absence of pujas in temples during eclipse time, it is otherwise in Avudaiyarkoil temple conducting the six-time puja as usual even during such occurrence. The philosophy is that eclipses cannot stop the pujas for Shiva having any beginning nor an end no Aadhi no Andham. Manickavasagar wrote Thiruvasagam, one of the sacred books of Tamil Saiva Siddhanta, in this Temple. This Temple is considered one of the Thiruvasaga Sthalams.
