magnificently sculptured Vinayaka icon is the first one receiving prayers and
there are 108 Vinayaka images along the flight of stairs and around the hill. Of
all kinds and sizes, as a matter fact. The builders fully realised the mighty
might of this Lambodara and suitably set up his statues all along the way.
Thanks to the ingenuity of the theist builders, for giving supreme significance
to this Vigna Vinayaka, whose viveka won universal applause. As we go upwards,
we see many beautiful high arches adorned with several images of the Lord giving
darsan in the company of his parents, or with his lovely spouses Valli and
Devasena. On either side of the steps, polished long slabs are arranged for
sitting to drive off the fatigue of climbing.
