This temple is counted among the noted vishnu temples of KonguNadu. The Image of the lord is flat on the four sides and conical in the center. The form was first discovered by one Kondamanaicker a few hundred years ago (we are given to understand). The devotee once sited his cow shedding it's milk on a sandhill. Induced by curiosity, he dug it, when manifested the image with Conch (Sanguchakkram) and Disc (Chakkram) as well as Saligram and Chikandi (weapon). Inspired by the divine revolution he ordered a temple to be built up for Shree Venketachalapathi enshrining the form. Devotee's who have taken vows to make offering to the lord of the seven hills can fulfil them in Mondipalayam, in the event of their inability to go to thirupathi. Located 50 Kms away from Coimbatore in Avinashi taluk.
