Arulmigu Patteeswarar Swamy Temple, Coimbatore

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.

  • Ancient Hindu Temple of Lord Shiva. No doubt it is a religious place, but also lot of wonderful sculptures are here. A Divine place to search within oneself and get peace of mind.
  • A very old Shiva temple. Magical place. As for every temple make sure to wear long pants and take off your shoes before entering. They have service around 5-6 pm. Try to be there around hat time to experience it.
