KUNDRAKUDI - VINAYAKAR TEMPLE 

This peacock shaped ancient hill temple enshrining Lord Muruga in the sannidhi atop, and Siva Peruman in another at the foot of the hill has great legendary background. Both are famous and their legends are long. In addition to these most adorable gods, there are installed equally famous divinities, like powerful Alagammai, Agasthiyar and Vinayaka in separate independent mandirs. This hill temple is provided with a flight of stairs for easy ascent. On the way there are two much-hallowed temples both for Vinayaka in two of his aspects and distinct names, such as Thogaiyadi Yinayakar and Vallabha Vinayakar. These are excellent mini-shrines adorned with artistic sculptures. Devotees offer prayers to them after worshipping Suva Peruman in the temple at the foot of the hill. Nityanaimithika worship is offered with great devotional fervor. To cap it all, as it were, there at the top of the hill too, there is another separate independent shrine for Vinayaka and it is called Swarna Ganapathy. What a gesture! In purely a Muruga kshetra, there are many separate sannidhis for Vinayaka! Isn't he his elder brother? Doesn't he deserve such veneration? So .this place is having the whole family adored fittingly at three places. All the shrines are visited by the devotees with inexplicable religious ardour, and deem their visit most fortunate for availing the darsan of all the highly revered and indispensably -adored daivams in one single visit more than the principal shrines installed with Siva and Muruga icons at it. The Vinayak mandirs are enshrining different and distinct images of Ganapathy. The founder-builders' ingenuity and piety defy description. .

It lies 12 km off Karaikudi, the citadel of Nattukotti Chettiars, accessible by bus and four wheelers at all hours from nearby towns Eke Trichy etc.
