PONDICHERRY - MANAKULA VINAYAKAR TEMPLE

THE EMERGENCE OF ARCHAMURTI

The emergence of this swayamvyakta archamurti is quite bizzare that wrings veneration. According to sthalapurana, once an Englishman found on the bank of a pond, a black lump of a stone lying and obstructing the narrow pathway. Considering it a hurdle and eye-sore, he flung it into the sea nearby and went his way. And lo! when he went that way next morning, it was there in its original place and seemed to be staring at him, as it were. Disgusted at it, again he flung it with all the might at his command. Miraculous! on the third day too, to his shock he found it in its primary place. Struck with horror, he reported to Hindus going that way. Listening to the whole episode and realising Vinayaka's intent of being installed and adored, philanthropists and humanist devotees came forward and built a beautiful imposing temple and installed this potent Vinayaka in accordance with agamic tenets.
