The bounty of Grace is not reserved for only to the adherents to Hinduism.

It flows in abundance to any one who has faith and one who worships, irrespective of religious denominations.

Sangameswarar alayam is a temple in Bhavani, in the Erode district, of the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. It is a Hindu templededicated to Lord Shiva.

The temple was built at the confluence of Kaveri river, Bhavani river and ‘agaya gangai’, an invisible underground water source.

The temple was praised in old Tamil literatures Thirupugazh, Pillaithamizh by Thirugnanasambandar and Arunagiriyar, as Thirunana.

It is  said that during the East India Company regime the then Collector of Coimbatore and Salem Districts, William Garrow, who had his headquarters at Bhavani, worshipped Goddess Vedanayaki,almost on a daily basis and being a Xtian was barred from entry..But he chose to live in a Bungalow adjusant to the Amman and made 3 holes on the wall so that he can have uninterrupted Darshan every day of his favourite Deity(The holes are still there!) One night ,he was awakened in his Draem with the appearance of Amman Vedanayaki and the Goddess directed him in his dream to vacate his bungalow immediately. The moment he moved out, the entire bungalow collapsed. He wondered at this miracle and he presented to the temple an ivory cradle, which is still in the temple, with his signature…
