The idol is carved on rock at the bottom edge of a small hillock; inside a cave. This hillock lays spread in an area of more than 100 acres with solid rock.
The structure of the deity is very peculiar and rare, perhaps, seen nowhere else., Lord Dhakshinamurthi, the master of all masters, sitting on a pedestal, one leg mounted on the other, head a little lifted up, body leaning towards back and with a charming look at his devotees.

He Does All Things Well
Ramdas feels that it is necessary to explain the meaning and purpose of temples, in which an image is installed as a symbol of God.
God is Beyond Name.
The instrument, which we have to make use of, in trying to comprehend Him, is the mind. And the mind can think only in terms of name and form.
When we stand before the image, we take it as the very embodiment of the Divine. We sing before it of His great attributes, His infinite glory and power, His eternal existence, knowledge and joy.

Let Us Do Good
Helping People Who Need It
The sanctity of the temple can be preserved only by the faith and devotion both of the priests and of the people who offer worship there. People must go to the temple only for worship
Teach Children Love God
The sanctity of a temple largely depends upon the faith, purity and devotion of the priests who perform daily worship in it. The Mantras that are recited during the Puja are also charged with spiritual power.
How Important is Faith
The image, by itself, is only a mere idol, made of metal, wood or stone But the consecratory ceremonies at the time of the installation of the idol invest it with divine powers.
Guiding Words for Living
You matter to God
So, if we want to concentrate our mind on God, we have to give Him a name and a form. The image in the temple serves this purpose.
All should have free access to a temple, no matter to what caste they belong. But the holy atmosphere in the temple should not be defiled.
God is beyond all
God is beyond name and form. The instrument, which we have to make use of, in trying to comprehend Him, is the mind. And the mind can think only in terms of name and form.
