As an up-coming commercial town, next to that of Coimbatore in the south. Pollachi has made an indelible mark in the history of Tamil Nadu. It claims many ancient temples of great renown, carrying on religious activities with a fervour unbeatable. Though there are several shrines for many gods and goddess at several places in the big town, the temple for Lord Subrahmanya and Mother Mariamman deserve indispensable mention.

The temple built in the Dravidian architectural style. The carvings on the walls end adorning the tower and pillars with rare sculptural pieces are its special points and they are drawing aesthetes and theists as well throughout the year. The Subrahmanya temple is treasuring up many rare ornament pieces. Mother Mariamman has earned a unique name and her attraction lies in her warding off her devout bhaktas from Satanic forces and dreadful diseases. Daily worship is offer with great zeal. And the annual festival lures huge crowds overflowing the temple complex and the town Illuminations and procession are its star attraction and devotees come from far off places to redeem the vows taken with performance of special rituals.
