Recently visited the famous Pillaiyarpatti Pillaiyar Temple also called the Karpaka Vinayakar Temple in Tiruppathur, Sivaganga district. This temple was built during the early Pandyan kingdom in 5th Century A.D.
In this cave temple Lord Vinayaga appears with two hands, unlike in other temples where lord Vinayaga/Ganesha appears with four hands and seated without Angusapasam, with his legs folded and stomach not touching the Asanam in the form of “Artha Padma” Asanam. This temple is near by Kundrakudi lord Murugan temple.
