This temple is dedicated to Hindu Lord Ganesha and attracts devotees from all over India, especially at the time of Ganesh Chaturthi, the Indian festival that celebrates the birth of Lord Ganesha every year. However, the invigorating Dravidian architecture of the Temple calls for a day’s visit for anyone who is travelling to Coimbatore.
There are many folktales and stories related to the Temple and Lord Ganesha. Amongst the most popular ones is that of a cart, which got stuck exactly in the place where this Temple stands today, and it was believed to be God’s wish to have a Temple constructed in the same spot. Thus, this magnificent Temple was constructed and is highly revered by both locals and tourists alike.
