Koniamman Temple - Coimbatore India

The Koniamman temple is an ancient temple located near the Townhall in Coimbatore. Goddess Koniamman is the deity worshipped. The history of the temple and deity dates back to the 13th century AD.


The temple was built 600 years, ago by a leader of a small cult known as "Irulas". The small village was also named as "Covanputhur" after the leader of this group, whose name was "Covan". This Covanputhur later on changed as Coimbatore. This ancient temple was situated in the north of Coimbatore near Sanganur stream. Later when there was a fear of "Chera" invasion the "Illangosar" tribe which was ruling at that time, built a new fort and to guard this fort, they built a temple and named the predominant deity as "Koniamman".


After this tribes ruling came to an end, the temple also had a sluggish period. Realising the importance of this temple, during the Mysore dynasty one of its kings renovated the temple and consecrated the Devi Koniamman in the style of "Mahisasuramardhini".
