LORD MAHABALESWAR OF GOKARNAM

THE VINAYAKA MANDIR

Another adoration-worthy god is Vinayaka installed in a great shrine near the Koti Thirtha. This image is installed in memory of the memorable part he played at the instance of Brahma for keeping the Atmalinga confined to Hindu India than reaching the danava lankarajya. His image is so sculptured that it bears the marks of the blow of Ravana's club and his reduced stature owing the heavy weight of the blow. His short-legged shape flashes on the mental screen the whole episode. Visitors offer soulful prayers for this short - statured and high-souled Vinayaka again and again before leaving the spot. With these and many other adorable deities, this pilgrimage centre is attracting perennially. A visit brings benefits material and spiritual as well. Avail them for all-round development. Postpone it not for enjoyment of bliss.
