Shrungagiri Shanmukha Temple (Six Faced God) - According to the temple website   It was Lord Shanmukha's own will to choose the barren Hillock in Rajarajeshwari Nagar as His abode and He inspired His Holiness Sri Sri Sri Bharathi Theertha Mahaswamiji of Sri Sharada Peetham, Sringeri, to appoint Dr. R. Arunachalam as His contractor to build Shrungagiri Sri Shanmukha Temple on the hillock.Thus ordained and blessed, Dr. Arunachalam's extraordinary visionary capacity guided him to design the entire temple structure based on the very name of Lord Shanmukha,which means a ‘Six Faced God'.

Sun Tracking

The temple roof is fitted with a Sun Tracking System having 2 vertical and 2 horizontal sun light sensors, which position themselves to face the Sun from morning till evening and track maximum Sun rays at any given point of time during the day.

The Sun rays thus tracked are directed on to the main deity, from any direction, enabling ‘Surya Kirana Abhisheka' to Lord Shanmukha right from early morning.

Lazer Sky Show

Plans are being finalized to organize a Lazer Sky Show against the background of mist and smoke screens.The fact that the tall structure of the Temple, its Gopuram and the Crystal Dome are all situated on top of a hillock, commands a view from a 10 kms. radius both in the morning and during night.

Crystal Dome

The Crystal Dome stands at a commanding height of 42' from the top of the Temple Gopuram, embedded with 2500 Nos. of 1' diameter crystals. During day time, when direct Sun Light falls on the crystals, the same is converted into a beautiful “Rainbow” pattern. In the evening, the crystals are illuminated by 27 Watt LED lights, each crystal disseminating 16 colour combination lights, forming 138 patterns.
