This is a famous temple located in Perur to the west of Coimbatore. It is dedicated to Lord Shiva and was built by Karikaala Chozhan, a famous Chola king. The history of the temple can be dated back to 1,500 years and the presiding deity is said to have self-emerged. The temple has a beautiful architecture with many spirals and halls. The main draw is the golden statue of Lord Nataraja (a form of Lord Shiva). Several pillars boast intricate carvings depicting the manifestations of the god. The ceiling is equally arresting and has been ornamented with carvings of a series of chain links with a lotus at the centre. The temple has also been patronised by poets like Kachiappa Munivar and Arunagiri Nathar.
