Adjacent to the main Yaganti Temple there are many small cave temples which are illuminated by numerous diyas as these caves hardly receive any natural lighting.

One can never find crows within the premises of Yaganti. This is because when Sage Agastya meditated, he was disturbed by Kakasura, the king of crowds. Enraged, he cursed and banished crows from entering the premises. As the crow is considered to be the vahan or vehicle of Lord Shani, even he cannot enter this temple.

Another awe-inspiring element of Yaganti temple is the growing Nandi. There is a massive statue of Nandi at the temple that has grown or enlarged over the years. The Archaeological Survey of India has confirmed the growth of the statue as the rock has an enlarging nature. Worshippers consider it a miracle and hold great regard for this unusual phenomenon.
