The Ayyanar Temple

This Ayyanar Temple is in the little town of Ayyampalayam, Dindigul District. According to the temple priest, the Ayyanar temple is at least 400 years old. The legend is, a statue appeared while the farmers were cultivating the land and the headman of the town built the temple surrounding it.

Devotees from near and far arrive here during the Shivarathri festival and stay awake all night within the temple complex.
