Darshan at Veyil Ugantha Vinayakar Temple, Uppoor, Ramnad District 18/2/2021
His Holiness left early in the afternoon from Ilayathangudi after performing Nitya Chandramouleeswara Puja and blessing devotees with Prasadams. The entourage then started towards Rameswaram which is about 175 Kms from Ilayathangudi.
Taking the old Yatra route, the entourage reached Uppoor via Devakottai and Tiruvadanai. His Holiness was received by Temple Archakas, Uppoor Zameen Sri Narayana Chettiar and other important dignitaries in the entrance of Veyil Ugantha Vinayakar Temple.
The temple is very ancient and connected with Jagaduru Shankarabhagavatpada's Charitra. The legendary belief of the temple is that Lord Ganesh blessed Surya Bhagavan and gave Vimochanam, hence the name Veyil Ugantha Vinayakar & that Ganesha Pancharatnam was sung by Shankarabhagavatpada at Uppoor on his way to Rameswaram.
During the visit of His Holiness, after recital of Ganesha Pancharatnam, Special Pujas & Harathi were performed to Vinayaka. His Holiness blessed all the assembled devotees. His Holiness blessed for smooth conduct of ongoing renovation work. The authorities also sought blessings for Kumbhabhishekam and invited His Holiness to bless the same. His Holiness then left for Ranabali Murugan temple, Peruvoyal.
