Thanks giving:

Those facing heavy debt burden, begin a worship of lighting 12 lamps with coconut oil on a Suklapaksha Chaturthi day (4th day after the new moon day) and continue the same on each Chaturthi day (4th day both from the new and full moon days) reducing the number of lamps one by one each time. The philosophy is that the debt burden would begin to come down as the number of lamps is reduced. Hence Lord Vinayaka of the temple is worshipped as “Debt Relief Vinayaka.

Greatness Of Temple:

There are Vimanas in the sanctum sanctorum. The depiction of Kailash Darshan with Vrushab (Bull vehicle of Lord Shiva) in the front part of the temple with Lord, Mother, Vinayaka, Sage Naradha, and Subramanya is very beautiful that would not allow the devotee to leave the place.

The Yagasala is in the ground floor. There are steps to reach the upper ground. The steps teach the lesson that he/she progresses step by step in life. At the top, the presiding deity – Lord Vinayaka looks as if He is waiting to grace His devotees. Karpaka Vinayaka and Manicka Vinayaka are on both sides of the presiding deity. His vehicle (the mouse) and the Peeta are before Him.

Mother Swarnambika graces from the right side of Lord Vinayaka with Mother Meenakshi and Mother Visalakshi on Her both sides. The significant worship of carrying Milk Pots attributed to Lord Muruga and Shakti temples is very famous here. Devotees observe fast and carry milk pots on Vinayaka Chaturthi day.

Temple History:

Lord Vinayaka representing the power of Mother Shakti graces in the temple sitting on a stage called Avudayar on which Shivalingas are installed. The Lord has a broken tusk in his right hand and the Modhagam (sweet pudding) on the left facing the north east direction (Eesanya direction) belonging to Lord Shiva, showing his left foot indicating that the devotee would be protected from his troubles when he surrenders to the Lord.

It is believed that worshipping this Vinayaka would amount to worshipping Shiva-Shakti together. Unlike the other temples, this Vinayaka temple has two floors.
