MADURAI - THUNDRU VINAYAKAR TEMPLE 

It is said that this Swaymavyakta image was found during the digging operations at the large tank near the Thyagaraja College. It is a specimen of excellent craftsmanship, and its finish and execution are marvelous. It is about twelve feet in height. And installed on high dias of about five feet.

The second one is only about a foot and a half lying near the flight of stairs at the south entrance, facing east. All, invariably worship this Lord with ash pouring over the head. And there are scores of such images of all sizes in the temple in several places. Though they are adored, these two are receiving devout prayers from every visitor without fail. Yet, there are scores of others, like Maapillai Vinayakar and Siddhi Vinayakar at several places in this town receiving regular prayers with great fervor.

This temple is in the heart of the famous pilgrim city, Madurai - Tamilnadu near bus stand and railway station, accessible by walk even.
