Perur Temple  
Perur TempleA historically and architecturally significant landmark, built at Perur, this 1,500-year-old temple was built on the banks of the holy river Noyyal by King Karikala Cholan. The temple is a magnificent piece of architecture which inspires as much awe and admiration for its architecture, as devotion. Many other kings including those of the Hoysala dynasty and the Vijayanagar emperors have made architectural contributions to this temple.

Perur TempleThe temple's deity is Lord Shiva and his consort Pachi Nayaki. The temple complex has about seven separate smaller temples inside its compound. There is a holy palm tree Irava Panai (the deathless palm) and a holy Tamarind called Pirava Pule (the unborn Tamarind). The temple is also popularly known as Mel Chidambaram. The temple can be compared to any other great temple of Tamil Nadu, except for its smaller size. It has long pillared corridors with exquisite carvings and huge sculptures. The space inside the compound provides the locals space to relax.
