The temple is presently being renovated at a cost of Rs 30 lakh and its Mahakumbabhishekam is going to be held on 7th February 2011

In connection with holding of the Mahakumbabhishekam of Sri Jalanatheeswar temple, it was mandatory to hold the Mahakumbabhishekam of the Lordess Thakkaliamman temple who is the Kaval Deivam of the village. Therefore the temple was also renovated at the cost of Rs 10 lakh and its kumbabhishekam was held on 26 January 2011 with complete geity.

Besides the temple car which was constructed more than 100 years ago had outlived its utility and hence efforts were initiated to construct a new temple car at the cost of Rs 40 lakh.
