Lord Trivikrama appears in the sanctum sanctorum with His left leg above His head, showing the right hand as if to receive the Dhan and a finger of the left hand as if asking for the next one foot land promised to him.

This is the Trivikrama form of Lord Vishnu. The Vimana above the sanctum is called Pushkala Vimana. Procession deity Thadalan is nearby. He is also praised as Thavittu Panai Thadalan.
