About Go to Erumbeeswarar Temple

Built by Aditya Chola somewhere around 871-907 CE, Erumbeeswarar Temple stands as a token on his victory in the battle of Tirupurambiyam. The name of the temple is derived from the words Erumbu and Easwaran, which stands for ants and Lord Shiva respectively. Located at the top of a 60-foot hill, the temple is a beautiful example of Chola architecture. Visit this religious place with your friends and family when in Trichy. According to legends, the leader of celestial deities, Indra along with other gods, transformed themselves into ants in order to deceive Tharukasuran, demon who had conquered the earth and the heaven. When the gods reached this temple they found it impossible to climb up, for the surface of the lingam was slippery. It was then, Lord Shiva transformed into an ant hill and slithered his head for enabling the ants to climb up and worship.
