Arulmigu Patteeswarar Swamy Temple,Perur,Coimbatore

Welcome to Arulmigu Patteeswarar Swamy Temple,Perur.

This Sanctum – sanctourm of this Temple was built by Karikala Chola in the early Christian Era. In the ninth century, Saint Sunfarar vistied the temple and immortalised it in his Thevaram. In the Kongu Chola Period (11th to 13th centuries Ardha Mandapa and Mahamandapa were built and used for inscribing the details about the numerous gifts made to the temple. From 14th to 17th centuries, the Hoysala, Vijayanagar and Nayaka kings gave endowments.
The famous Kanaka Sabhai was built by Alagadri Nayak of Madurai in the 17th century. Tippu Sultan of Mysore attached half of the Inams of the temple in the 18th century. Later on, the East India Company restored it to the temple. The Swami and Amman Temples were renovated in the Middle of the 18th century and later on the Mantap of 63 Saints was built. In the 20th century, the Kalyana Mantapam and the front Mantapam were built and the tower was repaired. Historically, the surroundings of Perur date back to the Roman period as a “Treasure Trove” of Roman coins was discovered here.

Religious Importance

This is an ancient Temple of pre-historic age. As per legend the calf of Kamadhenu discovered a sacred Sivalinga. A temple came to be built over it. The place became a “Vaippu Sthalam” to Lord Siva since it was sanctified by Saints Appar an Sundarar in their Thevarams. In this Temple the Kanaka Sabhai or the Golden Hall of Dance, has a beautiful form of Nataraja in the dancing posture which he manifested to the Rishis, Gomuni and Pattimuni.


This ancient place has produced apart from the Thevarams, very fine literary and historical compositons. Cholan’s PoorvaPattayam deals with the origing of the Temple and gives and account of the folk – Lore of the place. The inscriptions, ranging over a few centuries, give valuable information about the customs and manners that existed a thousand years ago. The Thiruppugazh pieces of Arunagiri Nathar give an account of the Temples five centuries ago.

Sculpture and Archaeological

The famous Kanaka Sabhai presents a unique collection of Stone sculture carvings, the like of which is not found elsewhere. Its two rows of ten big pillars have exquisite carvings of manifestations of siva. Its terraced roof has a series of stone-chains with a numerously pettalled lotus at the centre. The smaller pillars have a large number of mythological carvings. The tank is a fine piece of symmetrical steps with 16 angles.
The Cars have fine wooden carvings which attract the cupidity of even foreigners. The idols excel the other temples in beauty. Even the small shrines surrounding the main temple are very ancient inscriptions of high value.

பட்டீசுவரர் திருக்கோயில்

அருள்மிகு பட்டீசுவரர் திருக்கோயில் - வரலாறு

வரலாறு :
இறைவன் பட்டீசுவரசுவாமி இறைவிக்குப் பச்சைநாயகி என்று தமிழிலும், மரகதவல்லி என்று வடமொழியிலும் குளிர்ச்சியாகத் திருப்பெயர்கள், சிவன்கோயில் என்றாலும் சிற்பங்களில் வைணவமும் ஏராளமாக இணைந்துள்ளது. ஆஞ்சநேயர், ஸ்ரீமாய கிருஷ்ணர் என்று அங்காங்கே தூண்களில் கலையுடன் சமய ஒற்றுமையும் சேர்ந்து மிளிர்கிறது.
பேரூர் நகரின் வரலாற்றைப் பார்க்கையில், இக்கோயிலில் பலவிதக்கலைப்பாணிகளும் சங்கமித்துள்ளது அதிசயமில்லை என்று புரிகிறது. அகழ்வாராய்ச்சிகளின் போது ரோமானிய நாணயங்கள் இப்பகுதியில் கண்டெடுக்கப்பட்டுள்ளன. இது கி.மு. காலத்தில் தோன்றிய ஊர். பின்னர் கி.பி.ஏழாம் நூற்றாண்டு வரை, பல்லவர்கள், சேர, சோழ ஆதிக்கம், கொங்கு, பாண்டியர் ஆட்சி, விஜய நகர அரசர்களின் கட்டுப்பாடு, மதுரை நாயக்கர்களின் அதிகாரம், இறுதியாக மைசூர் மன்னர்களின் அரசாங்கம் - என்று தென்னாட்டில் முக்கிய வம்சத்து அரசரகளின் கொடி நாட்டிய இடம் இப்பகுதி.
"ஆரூரார் பேரூரார்" என்றும் "பேரூர் பிரமபுரம் பேராவூரும்" என்றும் அப்பர் சுவாமிகள் தனது சேஷத்திரக்கோவையில் இரண்டிடங்களில் குறிப்பிட்டிருக்கிறார். எனவே சுமார் கி.பி. 650க்கு முன்னரே பேரூர் பட்டிசுவரர் ஆலயம் கட்டப்பட்டிருக்க வேண்டும். பேரூர் பற்றிய தனித்தேவாரம் மறைந்து போய் விட்டதாகக் கருதப்படுகிறது.

Sri Subramania Swami temple,Anuvavi

Anubhavi Subramaniar Temple, Coimbatore

Anubhavi Subramaniar Temple is an ancient temple situated in the outskirts of Coimbatore & it is located on the Anaikatty highway. Anubhavi Subramaniar Temple is one of the religious shrines in the region.
Swayambumurthi presiding deity and the five mango holy trees were washed away by nature’s fury in the year 1957. The new temple was built then in 1969 and consecration celebrated. The temple is 1 km far from the foot hills with 500 steps. Idumban shrine is before the hill temple.
While passing through this hill with the Sanjeevi mount, Sri Anjaneya felt thirsty. He prayed to Lord Muruga here for water. Lord punched a place here with His Vel from where water sprang up and flowed as a river.
This shows that Muruga worship was n vogue even during Valmiki’s period. There are also 2 mentions about the velocity of the arrow of Rama as that of Muruga’s Vel.
The word Hanu stands for Sri Anjaneya. Vavi in Tamil means water resource. Hanuvavi means a water source that appeared for Hanuman-Anjaneya. In days that followed the name changed as Anuvavi. As Kumara-Muruga helped Hanuman, the hill is also praised as Hanumakumaran Malai. Malai in Tamil means hill.

Arulmigu Subramaniyaswami Temple Marudamalai

Welcome to Arulmigu Subramaniyaswami Temple Marudamalai

Marudamalai Temple History

Lord Muruga is glorified as the God of mountain and mountainous regions in THIRU MUGURUGATRUPADI, a noted work of the Tamil Literature of the Sangam Age.The word Muruga is a comprehensive term, connoting several meanings such as sweetness, youthfulness, beauty, divinity and honey and therefore it is but natural for the Lord to have His abode amidst scenic beauty among hills and mountains. Situated at a height of about 500 feet in a plateau on the western Ghats, fifteen kilometres north west of Coimbatore, amidst lush vegetation and salubrious climate, Marudhamalai Hills, dedicated to Lord Muruga (Dhandayudhapani) is classified under KUNRUTHORADAL, one of the six main abodes of the God, the others being THIRUVAVINANKUDI (PALANI), THIRUPARANGUNRAM, (NEAR MADURAI), THIRUCHEERALAVAI (Thiruchendur), THIRUVERAGAM (Swamimalai) and PAZHAMUDHIRSOLAI (Azhagarkoil near Madurai). Set against the backdrop of hazy blue hills dotted with shrubs and bushes of varied hues, the sacred shrine verily reflects the picture of Lord Muruga, magnificently mounted on his vehicle peacock, flaunting and swaying its feathers and plume in full bloom.

Marudamalai Temple Origin

The hoary past of the temple can be traced in such ancient works as Sage Kachyapar's PERUR PURANAM. The origin of the temple is rooted in legendary antiquity and dates back to the age of Surapadama, the demon destroyed by Lord Subramanya referred to in SKANDAPURNAM. The inscriptions found in Thirumuruganathaswami Temple, Thirumurganpoondi places the origin of the temple in the 12th century A.D.According to Perurpuranam, Soorapadama, the scourge of the gods aided by his mighty brothers, Singamukha and Tharaka arrayed against them and struck terror in their already agitated minds by his sudden and surprising charges and depredations. Unable to bear the agony and anguish, the gods approached Lord Siva and sought His succour. Lord Siva comforted the Gods that Lord Muruga would come to their rescue, root out and destroy Surapadama and his retinue enmasse. The gods should hasten to the Marudhamalai Hills and await the advent of Lord Muruga, their Saviour! Perupuranam also alludes to a king called Kusathvajan, who, it is said, was blessed with a male issue, only after worshipping Marudhamalai Muruga.The Divine Cow Kamadhenu is reported to have grazed in the pastures of the hills of Marudhamalai.Perurpuranam lists the three neighbouring hills, vellingiri, Nili and Marudhamalai as the very manifestations of Lord Siva, Parvathi and Subramanya respectively and the three hills taken together as the very symbol of Somaskanda.

Sri Manneeswarar Temple,Annur,Coimbatore.

Sri Manneeswarar is to be remembered that as a swaymbu Lingam, under Kailasa vimana (tower above the sanctum) Lord Manneeswara graces devotes. Other shrines of this temple are 7 Nagar idols (Snake idols) known as Sarparaja shrine, Tiruneelakanda Nayanar, Anjaneya, Deivanai, Valli, Bhairava,Nataraja, Jupiter (Guru Bhagwan), Muruga, Nalvar who sang the Tiruvasagam and Thevaram hymns.
Devotees conduct special abishek to Lord and Mother. Devotees pray in the temple, seek pardon for bad doings committed knowingly or unknowingly plus repent for the sins continuing from births of past. They donate and give special offering to the Lord and Mother Goddesses too.
The region was a jungle in olden days densely infested with Valli plants. A hunter, Anni by name was eking his livelihood by hunting animals though he knew that killing lives was a sin. He knew no other work for living. One day, as he did not get any animal, he dug the Valli plant for its root to quench his hunger. Surprisingly, the length of root did not reduce despite his cutting and found it in full size despite his cutting it repeatedly. Out of curiosity, he continued to dig further and found the root bleeding. A voice came then saying that all his sins had been pardoned and advised him not to continue hunting. The hunter trembled and informed the king of what he saw and heard. The king found a Shivalinga in the place. He tried his best to pull out the Linga with a chain dragged by an elephant but could not succeed. Lord appeared in the dream of the king and advised him to drop his efforts to pull out the Linga as He would like to stay there itself. The king built the temple in the place.
Lord Sri Manneeswarar graces as a swayambumurthi under the Kailasa Vimana in the sanctum in the colour of sand. Rajagopuram is a 7 tier structure. There is also a wing like form on either side of the Shivalinga as that of Garuda (the eagle vehicle of Lord Vishnu) in a folded form. Garuda has a sharp vision and could see even small things on land even while flying high. It is believed that Lord Shiva is closely watching our doings with His sharp vision, hence this form. It is also believed that the Lord would pardon any sinner if sincerely and honestly promises before Him that he/she would not repeat committing sins. There is also a scar on the Linga showing the sign of a chain and also an injury sign of the weapon of a hunter.
The Lord is called Anneeswarar as He graced a hunter and the place Anniyur. Special pujas are conducted in the temple on new moon days. Mother graces in the name of Arunthava Chelvi. Oonjal festival is celebrated on each Fridays blessing devotees worshipping Her that day with child boon. While Mother Durga graces in the Shiva prakara in temples traditionally, here Sri Durga is in Ambica side. It is believed that all prayers are favourably responded in Durga shrine.
According some epigraphic evidences, the place has a mention as Mel Thalai Thanjavur. There are shrines for Sun and Moon near the Rajagopuram. Special pujas are performed on the first Sunday and Monday of Tamil months to Sun and Moon respectively in early morning. All the planets are facing Sun. There is a separate shrine for Saturn – Sani Bhagwan. Dhil rice (EL Sadam in Tamil) is offered as nivedhana to Saturn on Saturdays with pujas.
