Manneswara Temple - Annur

The Manneswara Temple is located at Annur, 30 kms from
Coimbatore. The Kumbabishekam was performed in 1990.
This Easwaran Temple was built by a Chera King from Chembium. It is believed that a hunter was digging the roots of a tapiaco tree to pull it down. He was surprised to see blood gushing out of the root. He later found a 'Lingam' beneath the tree. On hearing this, the King built a temple here. The uniqueness of this temple is that it faces west.

'Markandeya', a staunch devotee worshiped the 'Linga' enshrined here, it is believed.
