Arulmigu Patteeswarar Swamy Temple, Coimbatore
(4.6/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
Take in the spiritual significance and ornate construction of Arulmigu Patteeswarar Swamy Temple. Built somewhere between 1,500 and 2,000 years ago, the temple towers over visitors in a facade of striking pastel tones. Tour the many halls and gopurams (towers), and inspect the multitude of carved pillars representing Shiva in his various forms. Don't miss the golden statue of Nataraja--a depiction of Shiva as a cosmic dancer, and the centerpiece of the temple. The shivalinga is found beneath an effigy of a sacred cow, and if you're lucky you may witness the milk that is said to drip from under the cow onto the linga. Arulmigu Patteeswarar Swamy Temple is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Coimbatore Edition.

  • A big temple on the banks of river noyyal dedicated to lord Shiva. Here the god is is called as Patteeswarar which means the god who protects farmlands. The temple is a very old one and sculptures and scribe on the stones are important ones to watch. There are few important things to note in this town. 1. Tamarind tree in front of temple The seeds of this tree cannot be used for plantation 2. The palm tree which never dies 3. You can't find worms in the cow dung inside the temple area. There are more interesting information's are there

  • Traditional old pilgrimage spot. Worship lord Shiva. See the sculptures. This is the renowned place where Hindus do their rituals for the dead relative. The place is crowded on Festival and new moon days. Brahmin families are the main occupants of this place.
