Pullaimangal: 16 kms. A tiny village having an ancient Shiva temple dedicated to Brahmapureeshwara, is very close to the main road. It is not only a temple of art and sculpture but also a centre where other arts flourished in the past. The origin of the temple goes back to the 10th century relating to the reign of Paranthaka Cholan. The temple has many specimens of excellent sculpture around the main shrine.
