AITHIHYA OF THE TEMPLE

During Tippus invasion, the army of Tippu arrived at the northern bank of Karimpuzha river. Afraid of tippus soldiers ,in mates of hundreds of Brahmin families in the 14 desoms of the temple surroundings feared , like the other temples, this holy temple also will be subjected to burglary attack. All the great Brahmin pundits feared that the glittering idol of the lord Vinayaka may be destroyed by these miscreants. The priest of the temple then took the idol of Ganapathy from its place and placed the same in pot and hidden it in the temple pond, situated at the northern side of the temple.

When the invaders of the Tippu were about to cross the river they had a glance of Lord Ganapathy in his terrifying form and they retreated out of  fear. They went back after a few days the temple pond was drained out then every ones surprisingly found the pot in which Unni Ganapathy was laying inside the pot eating the Neyyappam, and Thus the Neyyappam became the major offering of the temple.

Another prominent legend is as follows,

Once a lot of devotees visited the temple every one wanted to offer the neyyappam to the Ganapathy , Mel shanthi in charge of the temple thidappilly found it as a tedious task to make the Neyyappam in a single fire place of the thidapilly. For all these devotees,Hence they made one lot out of the thidappilly.but the Melshanthi was not able to make the neyyappams in its proper shape,so they left the idea of making the Neyyappam outside the thidappilly. And restarted making the Neyyappam in thidappilly only, the legend is that Ganapathy himself would like to make the neyyappam only within his vicinity and would enjoy the process.
The Thidappily is situated in front of sanctum sanctorum of the Lord Ganapathy and it is small in size, Due to this we could make only limited number of Neyyappam every day, before the ucha pooja.

DIVINE POWER OF DEITY

The covering of idol of Ganapathy with neyyappam is one of the main offerings in the temple, that is called as Appam Moodal,A devotee thought that the idol of Ganapathy being very small, it can be covered with small quantity of neyyappams and he tried for it. But to his surprise, a small portion of the idol remain uncovered even after covering with large quantity of Neyyappams  He tried again and again to cover the idol with more neyyapams but in vein. Then he realized his mistake and he prayed the lord Ganapathy sincerely and apologized. Then he was able to cover the idol only with limited number of  Neyyapams.

The deities of  this temple can bring about miracles in the lives of sincere devotees. People from all walks of life including Educationalists, Aritsist ( Kathakali,Instrumental music, Vocalists etc) Policticians flock to this temple to offer workship and beg the blessings of Maha Ganapathy. Mahadeva & Sri Narasimha moorthy.

Above all numerous examples can be cited from the commonest of common people who pray the Lords in the temple from the depth of their inner souls on whom these deities especially Ganesha showers all their blessings and get rid of all their sins and priority their body , mind and soul.
