About Arulmigu Poondi Velliyangiriandavar Thirukoil - Poondi

The Velliangiri Mountains are an important part of the Western Ghats. Amindst that stands the Velliyangiri Temple, 20 km away from Coimbatore. Located at one of the five hills of historical importance in this region, it represents the power of Lord Shiva. One can find the rate Pancha Linga also here. Legend has it that Lord Brahma was fast asleep one day and did not perform his duty. To neutralize his sin, he went to the Himalayas for penance. This is where he found Shiva Dharisanam, who guided him to Perur. This is where Brahma is believed to have pursued his meditation. He was successful in pleasing Siva Peruman, who along with Umaiammai, did the Annantha Natanam. Mata Kalidevi was pleased and beseeched Lord Shiva allow her this vision of the Annantha Natana dance. That is when Umaiammai asked Lord Shiva perform for her and he did. Thus the Natanam of Velliyangiri Moolasthanam became famous. Chitra Pournami is celebrated with fervour here. The way from Coimbatore to these hills is a delight as well.
