  MUNIAPPAN (OR) AIYANAR TEMPLE:

  Muniappan ( or) Aiyanar Statue is situated near the Dam park near the river.

Muniappan ( Forefather) .  It is an ancient and very popular village deity of Mettur.  He is also known as "Aiyanar" ( Revered Father).  The word Muni is generally taken to mean an anchorite, or one who has taken a vow of mauna. (silence)   It is frequently used for a sage who has supernatural powers which he displays in his blessings and curses.  This interpretation is inappropriate when the phrase is seen in the combination of muniappan. The word muni stands for munnai ( fore ) and appan ( father ) Therefore it is believed the words muniappan and aiyanar refer to an ancient dravidian cult of ancestor worship.
