Masani Amman Temple
 

The highly revered shrine Arulmigu Masani Amman temple alias Anaimali Masani Amman temple, situated between Pollachi (15 km south- west) and Palakkad, is about 45kms from Coimbatore. The temple is nestled amidst emerald grassland interlaced with criss-cross pathways and rivulets against the backdrop of Anaimalai Hills at the joining of Aliyar River and the Uppar stream. 

Goddess Arulmigu Masani is the presiding deity here with four hands of which two of them are placed on the ground and two are raised above and the 15 feet high idol is seen in a lying posture. The two right hands of the deity hold a skull and a snake while the left hands hold a tiny drum and a trident. Apart from the main deity, Neethi Kal and Mahamuniappan are other deities worshipped here. Neethi Kal is a stone image in the temple representing the Goddess of justice with the body of a serpent. It is believed that by applying grinded red chilly paste on this deity, the lost valuables of the devotees will be restored.

Legend has it that, Lord Ram stayed in a graveyard here while he was wandering in search of Sita. The temple is always crowded with devotees, especially women, during Tuesdays and Fridays. The 18 day long annual temple festival named 'Kundam Thiruvizha' commence with flag hoisting on the new moon day of the Tamil Month Thai.
