According to legend, when the idol was being transported from Madurai for establishing a temple, the wheel of the cart broke down on the way. The devotees tried to carry the idol on their own but could not move it. Deciding that the Lord did not want to go any further, they decided to build the temple at the very spot. Hence it was given the name Eachanari Vinayagar Temple. An architectural delight, the temple does pose some problems for motorists who wish to park their vehicles as the temple is bang on the highway leading to Coimbatore. However, a visit to the temple is worth the trouble of finding a parking slot for your vehicle.
