PONDICHERRY - MANAKULA VINAYAKAR TEMPLE

UNIQUENESS OF THE TEMPLE

Among the most visit-worthy and much-hallowed places of worship that Pondicherry claims and proudly declares, the Manakula Vinayakar temple merits first mention. Its devotees are as numerous as its origin curious. By demonstrating his mysterious sports, he has entrenched himself in the hearts of both Indians and aliens and is receiving a wide variety of prayer services round the year and round the clock as a matter of fact. Almost all his awe-some multifarious forms in innumerable sizes are adorning the four wails numbering some hundreds. Not an inch space of the inner four walls is left bare, and moreover the names of his awe-inspiring rupas are distinctly mentioned under each frame. A novelty nowhere found in any temple in India. Forms such as his revealing three faces, five faces with hands ranging from two to twenty are artistically and colorfully carved and painted on the walls and it takes hours to see and realise the infinite sports he played. Even Maharastra boasting of the Ahta Vinayaka temples, deemed to be the last word in Vinayaka kshetras lags behind in the display of such superb representation of his fantastic forms on walls. "Hats off to the originators for such marvelous beautification of the temple with all his asadrisarupas", utter the devout Vinayakopasakas on going round the temple. They educate and impress the non-Indians with the glory of Vinayaka and his infinite powers. The illustrious national poet Bharatiya praised this Vinayakar in fine verses.
