It is said to consist the combined divine and ethereal qualities of the tri murtis – Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva and thus is also known as the ‘Trigunatmaka Lingam’. The Mahalinga is cooled down by the holy water from the five rivers (panchganga). This Mahalinga in this temple is reverred to be one of the important Jyothirlingas in the country.
