  As the temple is usually surrounded by Peepal, Neem & various herbal trees, body becomes healthy as it inhales pure, unpolluted air. Inhaling such air helps in the cure of many diseases like infertility.

Circumambulation means pledging devotion to the god
Circumambulation is a form of expiation and so, it is usually performed by the ones who have pledged their devotion to the deity just like we pledged our devotion to our spouse by circumambulating around the sacred fire seven times during marraige. By circumambulating, you accept the god as the centre, source and essence of our lives. Circumambulation is performed as a mark of respect, obeisance and total surrender to the deity and hence, must be performed devotedly in a meditative mood with complete focus on the deity.
