temple is located in Perur, 6 kms from Coimbatore on the Siruvani main
Karikala Chola built this temple - a Shiva shrine with a Swayambumoorthy,
in the early Christian era. According to the Sthalapuranam, when the
calf of Kamadhenu was playing in the Arasu trees forest, its legs hit
a hard object which secreted blood. Later, it was discovered to be sacred
'Siva Lingam'. This led a temple to be built here. It was built over
the Moolasthanam and worshipped by the Saivaites. Saints 'Appar' and
'Sundarar' sung of this sthalam in 'Devaram'.
