Prominence of the Shrine : Ganapathy is the ruler of “moments” (which is called as Ganam in Tamil) and he is also called as  Yanaimuhan(in Tamil Yanai means elephant and Mugan means face).  Ganapathy is the main God and he is worshipped first.  Every year  in the Chathurthi Thithi which comes after new moon in Tamil month “Avani”(Aug-15 to sep-15) , Vinaka Chathurthi festival is celebrated  grandly.

Temple History : In Kailas, when Goddess Parvati went to take bath, she created a boy using turmeric powder and gave him life.  She  ordered that boy to stay outside and guard her by not allowing anyone inside.  He stood as barrier when Lord Shiva entered, so Shive  got annoyed and cut off his head.  After knowing that the boy was Parvati’s son, he called his cremators and ordered them to bring the  head of the first creature they see.  They saw only elephant first, so as per Shiva’s order they cut off elephant’s head and brought to  Shiva.  Lord Shiva grafted the boy’s body with the elephant’s head and gave him life.  When Parvati came out and saw the boy, she  asked “who he was?” in Tamil “Pillai Yaar” which turned as his name “Pillaiyar” in Tamil is the History of this temple.
