MAYAVARAM

The Sthalavriksham isthe mango tree and the legend goes to show that when the Devi conducted penance in the form of a peahen, it consumed the leaves of the mango tree. Saivite saints Tirujnana Sambandar, Tirunavukkarasar, and Arunagirinathar the author of Tiruppugazh,
have sung in praise of the Lord and the Devi.

There are 3 shrines dedicated to Vinayaka under different names. Peria Vinayaka, i.e. Big Vinayaka is known as Sthala Vinayaka
and he is enshrined on the southern side of the flag-mast. Agastya Vinayaka is the second one and the tradition is that it was Sage Agastya who installed this Vinayaka and conducted worship. The other Vinayaka goes by the name Kalanjia Pillaiar, i.e., Granary Vinayaka, probably to guard the granary and to keep it full always. He is enshrined near the temple granary.
