This is an independent separate Vinayaka temple built on the way uphill to Yelathur Kanda Peruman temple. Though the devotees take trips to this hill to avail the darsan of the most popular Lord Kanda Peruman, they worship Vinayaka in this temple invariably, since it is on the way, and also the archamurti is the elder brother of Subrahmanya.  Moreover, he is the first God to be propitiated for every auspicious undertaking and hence this is an additional advantage unsought for. Aren't the devotees fortunate to have two flowers at a single pick? Of course in every Saivate temple, Vinayaka's image is invariably found, but here there is a difference. It is out and out an independent temple and worship is offered independent of any other adorable deity. Everyday devotes first worship is received by him only. Thus, this hill temple is blessing the devotees with the darsan of the two most revered brothers-the darling children of Gouri Shankar couple.

It is in Sarpavaran, a village in the Tiruvannamalai district, accessible by bus.
