Arulmigu Sangameshwarar Temple
Specialities : General  
x This Shivasthalam is located on the confluence of 2 rivers Bhavani and Cauvery. The temple is located on the northern bank where the 2 rivers meet. The temple is constructed on a 4 acre land. The main tower with 5 tiers is located on the north side of the temple. Eventhough this temple is a Saivite temple for Lord Shiva as Sangameswar, there is a separate shrine inside this temple for Lord vishnu as Adhi Kesava Perumal with his consort Soundaravalli Thaayar.


The shrine for female deity Vedhanayagi is facing east. To the right side of this shrine is the shrine for Lord Subramanya. Saint Arunagirinathar who visited Thirunanaa, has composed many songs (Thirupugazh) on Lord Subramanya. On the south side of the temple, the images of 63 Nayanmars are kept.
It is said that during the East India Company regime the then Collector of Coimbatore and Salem Districts, Willam Garrow, who had his headquarters at Bhavani, worshipped Goddess Vedanayaki. As only Hindus were allowed to enter the temple, the collector worshipped the Goddess from the outside of the temple by seeing Her through an opening made in the temple wall. One night when the collector William Garrow was sleeping in his bungalow, the Goddess directed him in his dream to leave the bungalow at once. As the collector left the bungalow, entire bungalow collapsed. In appreciation to the Goddess who save his life, he presented to the temple an ivory cradle, which is still in the temple, with his signature.
