Shobha(usha) gowri The Suryanar at Thirumangalakkudi temple faces west. The presiding deity here is Suryanarayana in a chariot like vimaanam, representing the sun's chariot.
A temple for Sun is very unique though you can find the sun or a navagraha in many or almost all temples.
There are also shrines to Kasi Viswanathar, Visalakshi and Brihaspati (Guru) in the sanctum. Shrines to the other celestial bodies are located outside of the sanctum.

The sanctum and the ardhamandapam are built of stone, while the rest of the shrines are brick structures. The Kol Theertha Vinayakar shrine is considered to be of importance here. An elaborate worship protocol involving circumambulating the entire temple nine times, is prescribed for devotees visiting the temple.
