About Perur Pateeswarar Temple

Located at the western part of Coimbatore in Perur, Patteewswarar Swamy Temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva or ‘Patteeswarar’. His consort was Parvati or ‘Pachainayaki’. Legend has it that the calf of bovine-goddess Kamadhenu, who is known as ‘mother of all cows’, discovered a shivalinga here and a temple was built over it. This later became Lord Shiva’s “Vaippu Sthalam”. Do you that the footprint Kamadhenu is visible as an impression on the head of Shivalinga in the temple? Architecturally, the temple is quite rich, and has several halls and ‘gopurams’ (entrances). One of these halls house a golden statue of ‘Natraja’ (Lord Shiva performing cosmic dance of ‘Tandavam’). The surrounding pillars and walls are covered with intricate carvings depicting various manifestations of Lord Shiva, a delight for those with an eye for mythology. You will be totally spell bound looking at the various intricately carved statues housed at this temple, some ranging over a few centuries. These include the statues of Lord Ganesha in the Patti Vinayagar shrine, Goddess Saraswati holding her Veena (musical instrument), Bikshatana which is the ‘supreme mendicant’ form of Lord Shiva, Gajasamhara (aspect of Lord Shiva as slayer of elephant demon) among others (placed at Kanaka Sabhai). If you enjoy the performing arts, try to get here around the classical dance week. The place attracts talented Bharata Natyam performers from various dance schools of the city to come and perform at the temple.
