It seems, this temple (Perur Patteeswarar Temple) is known for its archaeological brilliance! The inner shrine was built around 500 AD, presumably by Karikala Cholan, a famous king of the Chola empire in the Southern part of India. There on, various other rulers also contributed to further constructions and renovations to this temple. It seems some of the statues kept in the main hall ‘Kanaga Sabai’ were made by an architect called Kambanachariyar. He carved each of them using a single stone brought from neighboring ‘Marudha Malai’ and it took 28 years to carve the statues and the decorative works on the pillars. Since there is a major ‘Kumbabishekam’ on the 12th of this month (12 November 2010 – 8:20 AM to 9:20 AM), they are renovating the Temple Gopuram and other inner artifacts as well. This Temple is located on the main road that goes to Siruvani, around 6 KM from Coimbatore. A few photos taken there can be seen below:
