 Greatness Of Temple:
     
  The Swayambu Linga in this temple is biggest in size among those in temples of Coimbatore district. It has a spacious sanctum sanctorum and Vimana.
River Amaravathi flows in a circular way from west covering north.  The rays of Sun fall on the river waters and reflect on the presiding Lord.  This happens throughout the year both during the Uthrayana – the March of Sun towards North from South and Dakshinayana – the march of Sun from North to South.  The Sun ray reflection on the Lord is a pleasant darshan to devotees.  This speaks volumes of the temple architecture of Tamilnadu.  There are 11 Shiva temples on the banks of Amaravathi, but Kadathur alone has a Swayambu Linga.  
The idol of Lord Dakshinamurthy in the temple is made of marble stone brought from Varanasi-Kasi.  It is also to be noted that the temple for Mother is in a separate building partitioned by a compound wall, hence both are separate temples with separate mandapas, entrance, kitchens-Madaipalli.  A Shivalinga is on the left side of Mother temple around the Arali plants.  It is still growing upward.  Showing harmony between the saivites and the vaishnavites, there is a shrine with due respect to Lord Vishnu.  The reputation is that the temple for Mother is on the right of Lord as in Madurai Meenakshi temple.
Many explanations are offered about the name Kadathur.  Important among them is the story of Pandavas spending their life incognito in this region.  Duryodhana, with a view to detect their presence here, seized the cows in the place and kept them hidden on the other bank of the river.  Hence, the place came to be called Karai Thozhuvu - place where cows are sheltered.   This changed as Kadathur in the days that followed.
 
     
  Temple History:
     
  During the rule of Vikrama Chola, 60 pots of milk were supplied from Karathozhuvu village to Kongela Sangu village.  Each day, one pot of milk split at a particular spot.  Digging the place, blood began to flow profusely, mixed with the river making the water red.  A Shivalinga was found with a cut on the head, the scar still visible.  The practice of worshipping Swayambulinga began from this event, it is said.  The temple was built during the 10th century.
