Sri Jayamangala Anjaneyar Thirukoil - Idugampalayam

This temple is 50 kms from Coimbatore and 6 kms from Sirumugai.

'Lord Anjaneyar' statue was built by 'Vyasa Raya' during Krishna Deva Raya's rule. The uniqueness of this statue is that it was carved from a single monolithic rock called Suyambu and it has a distinct posture. On the right of 'Lord Anjaneyar' is 'Lord Vinayaka' and 'Nandi', also carved on the same rock. On the pivot side of 'Lord Vinayaga' are carvings of Kamadenu shedding milk on 'Lingam'.

According to the epic, 'Lord Rama' requested 'Lord Anjaneya' to get a 'Lingam' to do pooja. On 'Lord Anjaneya' not returning for a long time, 'Lord Rama' made a 'Suyambu Lingeswarar' himself. Returning with a 'Lingam', 'Lord Anjaneya' made a futile attempt to uprooot the lingam made by 'Lord Rama' and put the Lingam he brought in place. Subsequently, he placed it beside 'Suyambu Lingeswarar'.

There is special bus faculity is available on every Tamil month first Saturday from sirumugai to temple.
