Namakkal is one of the major tourist destinations in Southern India. An oft visited temple town, Namakkal is frequented by patrons and devotees alike, with plenty of tourists thrown in the mix too. The temple town of Namakkal has a lot to offer to tourists, given its ancient and age old temple and countless nearby tourist attractions.

Namakkal is mainly famous for a temple located in the heart of the town – The Lord Anjaneya Temple. This temple, which is almost one thousand and five hundred years old (1500 years), lies below the Namakkal fort, with a huge statue of the main deity Anjaneya (or Hanuman) acting as a guardian to the fort. This huge statue lies directly across the street from a Lakshmi Narasimha Temple, facing the main deities from the other temple. The statue is eighteen feet tall and towers over the rest of the region.
