Velliyangiri is a beautiful temple situated in one amongst the five hills of historical importance. The five hills symbolically represents the five different faces of Lord Shiva. This is the only temple where PanchaLinga can be seen. Lord Brahma was fast asleep and lacked in his duty. So to overcome his sin he started meditating at Himalayas where he got Shiva Dharisanam and was guided to continue his meditation in the name of Pattimuni at perur. Pleased by the devotion Siva Peruman along with Umaiammai performed " Annantha Natanam " at Perur, Velliambalam.Mother Kalidevi overjoyed on seeing this asked Lord Shiva to bless her to have this " Annantha Natana " darshan always, At once Umaiammai asked Lord Shiva to perform a dance for her alone insisting that she is the first and right person to see and enjoy his " Natanam ". Lord Shiva happily performed a "Natanam" at Velliyangiri Moolasthanam ( Velliambalam) and blessed Umaiammai.
