Panayil Ganapathy Temple
Around 150 years ago, Sri. NarayanaPanickar, who was heading the family had total blessings of Lord Yogeeswaran. One day he had a Devine-intuition, in which he was asked to have the consecration oflord Ganapathy also in the temple. Based on this intuition, he travelled north and he got an idol of â€œBalaGanapathyâ€¯, which was consecrated along with other deities, during the occasion when he was possessed with the blessing of Yogeeswaran. Since the consecration was done in the Farm Lands (â€œPanaâ€¯), the temple was known as â€œPanayilGanapathy Templeâ€¯. when Sri.NarayanaPanickar was in possession of lord Yogeeswaranâ€™s blessings, the devotees pleaded that their â€œPonkalaâ€¯ be anointed. He said that he shall anoint the â€œPonkalaâ€¯ by wearing a red hot Elephant Chain from the flames as â€œPoonoolâ€¯ (Brahmins string, wore across the shoulder), and did so on the next day. The devotees, who watched this were horrified with this act, and many of them fainted. On this instance, it was decided that only the anointing of the â€œPonkalaâ€¯ will be done, without wearing the red hot elephant chain. Thus the â€œPonkalaâ€¯ was started in the PanayilGanapathy Temple.
