 General Information:

Sufficient space is provided around the sanctum sanctorum for circumambulation facility for the devotees.   Lord Vinayaka is seated on a peeta of minimum height as Agama rules.  At the entrance of the sanctum, Lord Narmadeswara and Mother Gnanakshi appear on both sides.  Lord Medha Dakshinamurthy, Lingodhbava, Mother Durga are on the goshata of the sanctum.  Shrines of Navagrahas (9 planets) and Lord Kala Bhairava are outside the temple.  Bali peetas are on the large pillars.  As the idol of Lord Vinayaka had been removed from its original place for installation in the new temple, a small idol had been made and placed in the original place.


As the Lord is Lakshmi Vinayaka (Maha Lakshmi the Goddess of wealth and prosperity), devotees pray to Him for all prosperity in life.

Thanks giving:
  Devotees perform abhishek and aradhanas to Lord. 
 Greatness Of Temple:

The weight of the idol of Lord Lakshmi Vinayaka was such that even 8 people could not lift Him then.  But surprisingly, only three were able to lift the idol from the Palalaya room to the present sanctum later.  Probably Lord Himself helped the carriers to reach His own place.

  Temple History:
  Pommanam Palayam village is on the Coimbatore Vadavalli-Thondamuthur road.  There is a place called GKS Nagar.  Those who moved to GKS Nagar built a small shed, installed Lord Vinayaka for their daily worship.  They also planted a Bodhi tree-Arasamaram and a Neem tree-Veppa Maram near by.  The population of the place grew in times that followed.
There also lived a small scale real estate businessman who met with heavy losses.  He was unable to maintain the family too.  He was confident that he would recover one day and surrendered to Lord Muruga in Vadavalli hills.  His business began to recover.  Naturally, he became an intense devotee of Vadavalli Muruga.  He also did some service to cover up water leakages in and around the temple and people praised the businessman.  
The real estate man got a direction from Lord Muruga saying that He was very comfortable in Vadavalli while His elder brother Lord Vinayaka was suffering from the impacts of Sun, rain and winter and therefore, he should build a temple for Him in a grand manner.  The businessman realized that what Lord Muruga pointed out was the Same Lord Vinayka in his own colony.  He held discussions with the people of the colony.  The construction of the temple began with a small room to shift the idol from the original place.  Even 8 persons could not carry the idol and they to have a break for three times.
 After Bhoomi puja, work progressed swiftly.  The temple was raised to 7 feet from the ground.  There are seven steps.  Lord Vinayaka was installed then.  The consecration of the temple was grandly performed by Marudamalai Sivachariar.
