Perur Patteeswaraswamy temple built by Karikala Cholan is located 7-km west of Coimbatore near river Noyyal. Coimbatore has many temples out of which the Perur Patteeshwara Swamy (also spelt as Swami) temple is the most popular one. The temple upholds huge statues.


The significance of Perur temple in earlier days is unfolded in the poetic creations of Arunagiri Nather and Kachiappa Munivar. The temple stands on the banks of the holy river Noyyal called 'Kanchi Manadi' by the locals. The sanctum seen in the temple is the joint effort of the Chola, Hoysala and Vijayanagara rulers. This temple is rich in architecture. The statues of Gajasamhara, Virabadra, Bikshadana, Oordhva Thandava, Saraswati with Veena all rival one another in artistic perfection.
