    Sixteen Ganesha Shrines found in one temple at Tamilnadu

    The number sixteen is normally famous in all respects. Our elders used to bless the youngsters as to "have all sixteen in your life". Here they mean sixteen type of wealth are essential in a life of a person. Sixteen otherwise told as "Shodasa" and is famous for Shodasa lingam.

    Now the shodasa Ganapathi shrines we can see in Manimoortheeswaram, a village near Tirunelveli of Tamilnadu. This temple is located at a distance of two kilometers from Tirunelveli. The specialty in this temple is that we can see here 16 Ganapathy shrines in one place.

    In this temple the Main deity, Lord Ganesha, gives darshan along with His Devi. It is said that Lord Ganesh has not married any one and He is a brahmachari. It is correct. But we can see here the celestial power - Shakthi as His Devi.

    In this temple, we can see different forms of Ganapathy.

    This temple is of 500-1000 years old. Address to locate this place is Sri Peria Ganapathi temple, Near New Bypass Road, Tirunelveli - 627001.

    Thanks to the excellent post of Mr. Pattabiraman, we have come to know about an ancient temple with religious significance. I have come to know that it is located near Tirunelveli in Tamil Nadu.
