At a distance of 34 Kms from Coimbatore Railway Station, Velliyangiri is legendary for a lovely historic temple devoted to Lord Siva. Velliyangiri is without doubt one of the 5 hills which signify the 5 completely different faces of Lord Shiva.
At an altitude of about 6000 ft, it’s situated on the best way to Siruvani. Velliyangiri is the one temple the place Pancha Linga could be seen. Mahasivaratri is well known in a grand method at this place.
There are frequent buses to Siruvani from Coimbatore (by way of Poondi junction). One can get down at Poondi-Siruvani Junction (28 Kms) and catch a personal/public vehcile to Velliyangiri foothill (three Kms). About three Kms trek from right here by way of dense forest will take you to the holy shrine.
