12 giant pillars, approximately 8 ft high, representing the 12 zodiac signs is an impressive sight here. The central pillar built with black stone is known as 'shani stambha' and is about five and a half feet in height. Tying sacred threads around these pillars is expected to confer blessings on the devotees. The temple also houses a separate shrine for Lord Hanuman.
