I could stand long enough to grasp it in my eyes and mutter a silent prayer. Lord Ganesha depicted with trunk to right is known as Siddhi Vinayaka and is worshiped in a special manner adhering to rules very strictly. Of course I could be wrong. Undisturbed reflections of the gopuram gates of the temple looked good. Yet another unique feature is: I have heard about this temple but never got a chance to visit it. Retrieved from ” https:

Devotees throng this temple in huge numbers. The right side is masculine and is considered hot fiery and aggressive. But in your photo, is his trunk turned to ‘our’ left or to his ‘right’? The lord’s name is Arjunapureeswarar.
Vinayagar Chathurthi Ganesh Chathurthi is the temple’s most important festival. What an interesting post, Ingrain! Lord Ganesha depicted with trunk to right is known as Siddhi Vinayaka and is worshiped in a special manner adhering to rules very strictly.
By the way, I thinkKarpaga is alluding to Kalpavriksha and has the property of fulfilling wishes. The Pillaiyarpatti Vinayagar Temple seems to be unique in many ways with respect to the idol. On the 9th day the car festival and the much celebrated decoration of sandal covering Santha-na-kkappu to Pillaiyar takes place which is of great importance among the devotees.
Karpaga Vinayagar is carved out in a cave of Pillaiyarpatti Hillocks. As of today, the Pillayarpatti Nagarathar worshipers are involved in conducting daily worship services in the temple, as well as maintaining it.
The Vinayagar sannidhi Sanctom Sanctorum is a cave where the 6 feet of Karpaga Vinayagar has been carved inside that faces north direction. Thank you for another beautiful, interesting and informative post about your world!!
Undisturbed reflections of the gopuram gates of the temple looked good. It is that time of the year again when Hindus are gearing up for Ganesh Chaturthi Aug 29th, Ganesha temples dot the length and breadth of India. The image of Pillaiyarpatti Pillaiyar and that of a Siva Lingam were carved out of a stone by a sculptor named Ekkattur Koon Peruparanan who put his signature livw a stone inscription, in Tamil Language used between the 2nd and 5th century, found even today in the sanctum.
That is a very curious and unique Ganesha. I often find Ganesha statues or profiles on so many place here, but I have never known the history. When I reached I felt slightly disappointed about the long queue to enter it. The Thumbikai trunk of Lord Pillaiyar is curled towards his right side and so karpzga God is also known as Valampuri Pillaiyar. That was a very vinajagar post. LliveSivagangai District. It is commemorated for 10 days long.
Definitely a place that I need to visit and see for myself. The presiding deity of the temple is Karpaka Vinayakar.
The temple walls reverberate with Vedic mantras recited by students throughout the day. It is believed that the icon of Pillaiyarpatti Pillaiyar must have been carved around the 4th century AD. Temples of South India 1st ed.
I could stand long enough to grasp it in my eyes and mutter a silent prayer. Nice photos Indrani and thanks for the information provided…never heard of this temple before…. Now I will always see which side it is curved towards and will remember this post!
No strict rules need to be followed while worshiping this idol. I loved to read the post and the info in it. It is said that the lord is not complete without being feminine.
