Within half an hour's drive from the city of Coimbatore stands the shrine of Vinayagar at Eachanari dedicated to Lord Ganesha. The temple follows typical Dravidian style architecture and is imbibed with a peaceful spiritual vibe around it. The story of the deity follows a myth that has been passed down from one generation to the next.
The tale of a cart getting stuck in the mud and a temple being created as per the God's wish a common and recurring folklore heard in many places all around India. It is more or less the same here as well. Needless to say that the temple celebrates the birth date of the deity every year with lots of grandeur and invites more people than any other day.
Ganesh Chaturthi is a busy time in this temple. Devotees flock here to show their devotion to Lord Ganesh every day, and the more pious and devout ones choose the early morning Homam yajna or fire ritual to attend. This is a costly affair, to both perform the offerings as well as to witness, because it is one of the most sacred forms of offerings done in any Hindu temple.
