Kameshwara Temple, Kamakkapalayam, Salem

Kameshwara Temple, Kamakkapalayam, Salem
Kameshwara Temple is a Hindu temple dedicated to Hindu deity Shiva. It is located in Kamakkapalayam village (Gram panchayat) in Salem district, Thalaivasal block in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu.
Kamakkapalayam was part of the Magadai Mandalam as of 1190 AD. Probably, during the Palaiyakkarar rule, this village was named after the Kameshwara temple's Moolavar Kamanathar.

The other villages named after Palaiyakkarar in this area include Govindampalayam, East Rajapalayam, Ammapalayam, Thennankudipalayam, Akkicheetipalayam, Ramanayakkan Palayam and Peddanayakkan Palayam. Kamakkapalayam is about four kilometres south of Thalaivasal towards Veeraganur.
