Bhavani

THE CONFLUENCE OF FAITH AND HUMANITY

BHAVANI

The Sangameswarar Temple in Bhavani is situated at the confluence of the rivers Bhavani and Cauvery. Also called 'Triveni of South India' it is an important pilgrim centre. Lord Sangameswarar with his consort Vedanayaki is the presiding deity. It is said that during the East India Company regime, the then Collector of Coimbatore & Salem districts, William Garrow, who had his headquarters at Bhavani, worshipped Goddess Vedanayaki. One night the Goddess appeared in his dream and directed him to vacate his bungalow immediately. The moment he moved out, the entire building collapsed. In wonder at this miracle, he presented to the temple an ivory cradle, which is still in the temple, with his signature.
