Eachanari Vinayagar temple, Coimbatore

Date: 30th April 2017

Visitors: Arun, Shilpi, Harsh and Vijayalakshmi

Fee: None

Timings: 5:00 AM to 10:00 PM

Main Deity: Lord Ganesha

Located 17 Kms from Sri Pateeswarar temple, Perur is the famous Vinayagar temple of eachanari. The temple is located right on NH209. The road was not very wide and lot of cars were parked on the side. I am sure there will be massive traffic jams during festivals. The story of the temple is that the idol was carved in Madurai and was transported to be installed in Perur. The vehicle carrying the idol broke down at this very place so the temple was constructed here. Ganapathi homam is performed in the temple everyday at 5:30 AM. The temple is open from 5 am to  10 pm without any break. We reached the temple around 11 AM when the priest were decorating and performing pooja. We had a nice darshan of Lord Ganesha and left the temple at 11:45.

No pics allowed as in many temples. So couple of pics from outside.

One of the famous and most visited temple in Coimbatore.
