Here in ambal sannithi you can see the Nandi, generally we see here lion.
Here Lion is replaced by Nandi, but Nandi interested in watching lord Shiva
Hence the Nandi head is turned slightly to view Shiva

(The temple is praised in the Thevaram hymns of Saint Gnanasambandar. This is the 82nd Shiva temple on the southern bank of Cauvery praised in Thevaram hymns- Padal Petra Stalam)
