KANIPAKAM - PILLAYAR AALAYAM

THE TEMPLE COMPLEX

The temple faces east and it is a blend of ancient and modern in construction. Though it is supposed to have been built some one thousand years ago, the renovation work has given a face lift and. so glittering dazzle and eye catching colour peep through the new additions made. As you enter it you see the counter issuing tickets for various prayer services. Just opposite it there lies the office room. Going further, a separate new structure-niche for Viranjaneya comes into your view. It is a new addition and with its modernity, it beckons you to come near. When approached you see a 10 - foot high image of Anjaneya. Its colour and decoration bend your head. After darsan and prayer you enter through the main gate of the temple. The courtyard is quite big and impressive, and with its spick and span, it elevates your heart. Surprisingly, the plinth area of the temple is a few feet below the Mahadwara. Should not one, leaving his ego fall at the feet of Bhagawan Vinayaka? "Adou pujyo Ganadhipah" - he is the only God among the Mukkotidevathas, who should be propitiated first and adored best for obstacle-free work and enjoyable career. So you must descend from the self made height. As you go round, you see Nagadevathas installed near the western wall under a Maredu Tree. In the other corner there is grown a tall beautiful adorable jilledu tree which is receiving prayers and circumambulation from all. In a separate niche adjacent to the eastern wall, there is situated the Navagraha mandap and visitors offer prayers before entering the garbha griha. After pradikshana devotees enter the second prakara through a passage built on the southern side. The antarala is quite spacious and accommodates hundreds of bhaktas. As in other temples, devotees queue up on two sides of the iron bars fixed for facilitating the priest to move about and distribute prasad etc.
