Namakkal

TTDC / Namakkal

Namakkal is known as the egg city due to its large egg production. Known for the 18 feet Namakkal Hanuman and the Narasimha temple, its name is derived from Namagiri, a single rock formation at the center of the town. This rock is enormous, with a 1-kilometer circumference and is 65 meters high. On top of this hillock, also known as the Saligramam, is a rock fort.

The Cave Temple:

Constructed by Adhiyaman rulers around the 7th Century, this cave temple has the shrines for Lord Ranganathar and Lord Lakshmi Narasimha. The temple has been declared as a monument and is specially preserved.

Sri Ranganathar temple is 250 meters away from the Lord Anjaneya’s shrine. The darshan of Sri Ranganatha, a 10-foot idol, can be seen in three parts as found in the Anantha Padmanaba Swamy Temple of Trivandrum. Lord Ranganatha is seen holding his Conch, Chakra, Bow & Arrow, Mace and Sword.

Digambara Anjaneya Temple:

The Anjaneya Temple is very famous and is around 1500 years old. Lord Anjaneya is an 18-foot idol carved out of a single rock, and he holds a japamala and has a sword at his waist.

The special feature here is that Lord Anjaneya’s gaze is fixed exactly at the divine feet of Lord Narasimha, which is on a hillock. The shrine is open to the sky and lakhs of pilgrims visit from all parts of the country.
