OJHAR - VIGNESWARA MANDIR

BIRTH OF VIGNESWAR

In accordance with it, he was born to Parshva couple as son. When he was in fifth year, gods headed by Siva reached the King and asked him to send Ganesh to wage war against Vignasura. When he was unwilling, Ganesh convincing his parents went to the asura's abode and bade his weapon Ankusa to bring the demon before him bound hands and legs. Vignasura tried to outwit him by taking several forms such as flood, fire, and cyclone. It was easy for Ganesh, the All-Powerful to bring him to his feet. When all the demonic powers proved futile, the beaten Vignasura prostrating before Ganesh begged for forgiveness. Taking pity on him he granted forgiveness with a difference' - he asked him to create obstacles to any, if he does not worship Ganesh before taking up any work, be it even the highest TRIO., Moreover, to deprive the power and to teach just lesson to the egoistic, evil minded erratic living beings, living either in heaven or earth. Finally righteous people should be protected always, when they remember him. It was accepted sans exception. From that moment Ganesh was appropriately called Vigneswar; for, he became the Lord of Vignasura, the trouble-shooter. This happened in Ojhar, and hence a befitting temple was built later. And rulers endowed it liberally.
