Bhavani: Sangameshwara Temple
Bhavani lies at the confluence of the rivers Kaveri, the largest river in Tamil Nadu and Bhavani, the second largest river in Tamil Nadu, with Akash Ganga. Hence this place is known as the Triveni Sangamam of South.
The Sangameswarar Temple built at the confluence of these rivers, is a pilgrimage and tourism spot. This Siva Temple at Bhavani near Erode, in Kongu Naadu, is a shrine at the confluence of Bhavani, Cauveri and Amrutavahini rivers(Mukkoodal). The Amirthalingeswarar in the temple is placed on a seat called Avudayar according to Saiva principles.
