It seems Pandavas worshipped this Sthala & in their memory 5 Shivalings have been installed.
The Stone Temple Flag (Kodimaram pr Dwajasthambham) is about 20 feet height which has remained undamaged in floods or hurricanes so far. Upto 1 PM everyday, the sea water level touches the top of this Stone Temple Flag.
After 1pm, sea level starts reducing on both sides & allows people to go & worship Lord Shiva! This is the speciality of this wonderful Temple, probably the only one of its kind in the whole world.
