 Greatness Of Temple:

Ayothyapattinam Sri Kodandapaniswam temple represents the spiritual ancestry of our temples without any pomp and splendour as the very qualities of Sri Rama (Kalyana Gunas) but majestic in its appearance.  The place derived the name as it had the foot prints of Lord Sri Rama.  Every stone of the temple bears an immortal poetry.  Every pillar is an outstanding example of temple architecture arresting the attention of the visitor.  Each produces music when tapped.


According to history, this temple was simultaneously constructed by Tirumalai Naicker along with Daramangalam Kailasanathar temple, Tiruchengodu Murugan temple and the Tirumalai Naicker Mahal.  The similarity of the sculptures is an evidence of this fact.


The sculptures are huge in size; the one depicting the killing of a demon by a divine horse, elephants, Yazhi an animal belonging to the lion family, a lion all in a single stone are a few to mention.  Above all, the coronation of Sri Rama is arresting in its beauty.  Sri Rama, Mother Sita, Lakshmana, Bharata, Satrugna idols are very beautiful.  Tirumalai Naicker appears with his queen in one sculpture. The temple is also noted for its immortal paintings on the ceilings speaking volumes of our spiritual glory.


Earlier, Sun rays were setting on the Anjaneyar shrine through the holes of the doors on the poornima of Chithirai (April-May).  Due to emergence of buildings around the temple, this is now lost.  This is not simply a temple in the sense we know, but also a house of ancient architectural and paintings art of the country.

  Temple History:

It is the conclusion of the learned that one need not visit the Ayodhya in the north and it would suffice if they visit the Ayodhyapattinam Sri Ramar Temple near Salem.  The sacred benefits they get there are in this temple itself.


According to one story, Sri Rama was returning from Lanka to Ayodhya with Mother Sita, Lakshmana, Hanuman, Sugriva, Vibishana and others after killing Ravana in the war.  They had to cross the Shaila hills.  When they reached the place, they could not proceed further as night had fallen in.  They found a small temple where they took rest.  But they could not reach Ayodhya in time for the coronation nearing then.  The time cannot be missed.  Therefore, Sri Rama had his coronation in Ayodhyapattinam itself and what was celebrated in Ayodhya in north was the second one.

Special Features:
  Scientific Based The significance of the temple lies in its architectural and painting beauties. The Sun rays falling on the Anjaneya shrine earlier on poornima days in the month of Chithirai are now prevented by the building raised around the temple.
