Sangameshwara (Siva) temple is in Bhavani , 16 Kms from Erode railway station. This temple is known as Dakshin Prayag as river Kaveri meets river Bhavani here. The confluence of these rivers along with river Amuda which is believed to be flowing underneath makes it a holy place and one can see constant stream of pilgrims in the bathing ghat here at the sangamam ( hence the Lord here known as Sangameshawarar) performing various rituals on its banks. It is believed that a bath at the sangamam purifies the mind as well as the body.
The temple of Sangameshwara is very attractive as it is a store house of excellent craftsmanship. One may wonder about the kind of work that would have gone into making ordinary granite slabs into magnificent ones.
Lord Sangameshwara is enshrined here facing the Kaveri. As we circumambulate there are subshrines for Vinayaga, Dakshina Moorthy, Muruga, Vishnu, Durga and Nataraja. All 63 Nayanmars also find a special place inside the temple. Amman here is Veda Nayagi, a powerful deity and Her idol is also well decked in finery. The mandapam leading to her sannidhi has lot of ornamental work on pillars and ceiling.
Saneeshwarar shrine is on the left of Amman sannidhi and next to it is the shrine of Jeeraheshwarar, which I have seen only in Tayumanavar temple at Rock fort temple, Trichy. There are also shrines here for Venkatachalapathi ( Vishnu), Shenbagavalli thayar ( Mahalakshmi) and Venugopal (Krishna).
There is a peepul tree on the banks of the rivers and there are many Nagas and Vinayagar under it. Pilgrims offer their worship here after a bath in the river before proceeding to the main temple of Sangameshwara.
