Arulmigu Manakkula Vinayagar Tirukovil Pondicherry/Puduchery

How to go to Arulmigu Manakula Vinayagar /Ganesh Temple Pondichery

The Manakula Vinayagar Temple is one of the famous ancient temple is in Puducherry, a Union Territory situated in the southern part of Indian sub-continent. The temple is 400 meters West of Bay of Bengal Sea, 165 Km South of Chennai (Capital of Tamil Nadu State) Lord GANESHA originally named as Bhuvaneshar Ganapathy became Manakula Vinayagar.

In Tamil 'Manal' means sand and 'Kulam' means pond near the sea, earlierly which was full of sand around pond. So the people called the god as Manal Kulathu Vinayagar [means God near the pond of sand]. Later it is named as MANAKULA VINAYAGAR.

Legend says that Jesuits and missionaries tried to demolish Manakula Vinayagar, but they could not demolish the temple. Everytime the idol was thrown into sea, it was washed ashored. During 1700 French even prohibited performing poojas and festivals particularly on Fridays in the temple. All the Hindus who were worshipping Lord Vinayaga objected and migrated to Moratandi English Territory. Still Lord Ganesha came back to bless Puduchery citizens

Temple Speciality: While we have not heard of a night shrine for Vinayaka in any temple, there is one in the Manakula Vinayakar temple. He stays here with his consorts. The idol taken to this shrine, called Palliarai, will have the feet part alone. Vinayaka on the Well: The stage (peetam) set for the God is on a well which many may not know. This may be a well or even a tank. A six inch radius pit runs on the left side of the peetam, the depth of which could not be measured
