Statue in Puliakulam is the largest monolithic statue of lord Ganesha in Asia. Road is constructed around the temple making the temple center of the round-a-na. The lord is decorated with fruits on the Tamil new year day. The temple is more than 500 years old. We reached the temple at 12:30 after visiting Eachanari Vinayagar temple. It was extremely hot when we reached the temple. We got a parking right in front of the temple. We had to walk just 10 steps but even that we couldn't walk and for the first time we ran to a shade. The temple itself was not very big. It was not crowded when we went. We had a nice darshan of lord Ganesha.

Couple of pics from outside.
