Aarudhra Kabaaleeswara Temple, Erode
This is one of the twin temples situated in the busy Fort area of Erode. The reason why the city got its name lies in the Thala Puranam ( உண்மையிலேயே தலை புராணம் தான் ) of this temple!!!
In those days, the King's palace was at a place called Soorapatti, and the Goshala (where the royal cows were kept) was at Pallipalayam. Everyday, a cowherd would carry pots of milk to the palace for the King's pooja, and while he did so one pot would fall down by itself and break over a particular spot and all the milk would spill on the ground. The cowherd did not know the reason why. He would be very careful while crossing that spot but in spite of that, the pot would break and milk would spill. When he took the remaining pots to the palace, he would get scolded for bringing  less milk. To save himself, he narrated the story to the Queen who thought he was selling the milk outside and lying about it. So she asked the King to send his men to check on the cowherd. The King's men found that the cowherd was saying the truth and reported back to the King. The King was surprised and came over to the spot and asked his men to dig the place to see what was causing this incident. When the men dug, they found nothing. The king then took the chisel himself, and started digging. When he hit the ground, the ground broke, and the head portion of the linga cracked into four, flew out and fell in four different directions. The place where the big portion of the head fell is called "Perode"( பேரோடு), the small portion fell is called "Sithode"(சித்தோடு), where the white portion (brain ) fell is called " Vellode", (வெள்ளோடு) and the place where the broken baana (பாணம்) along with the wet bloody scalp of the Lord remained came to be known as "Erode" (ஈர ஓடு or ஈரோடு) . The lingam still bears the cut on its head portion as is said to be wet at all time which is why the Lord is called Arudhra Kabaleeswara ( Eswara with the wet skull). The temple is ancient, built over 2000 years ago and the praharams are wide, housing several other sannathis. It is believed that Goddess Parvathi worshipped Shiva here as a peacock. She has a seperate sannadhi with a seperate entrance as well. 
A Beautiful Rudhrakoteeswara ( one lingam which has thousand and eight lingams engraved on it can be found on the praharam. 
Shiva Kudumbam under the Peepal Tree
One other unique feature is that there is a statue of Ambal and Shiva along with Ganesha under the Arasa Maram ( Peepal Tree) which I have not seen elsewhere.
