The 1008 Lingam temple is located in Ariyanoor, and it is one of the most famous temples of the city. The temple is under the control of a department of the Vinayaga Mission. There are 1008 Shiva Lingams present in the temple with the holy cow Nandi in front of them all over the hillock on which the temple has been built. There is an enormous Ganesha statue at the foothills of the temple.

The location around the area is picturesque, and the area is very serene. An idol of the presiding deity of the shrine Sri Umaiyambigai Samedha Sri Arunachala Sundareswara is positioned on top of the hillock. A sight of the idol is said to be worth all the uphill towards the temple.
