Abodes of Ganesh

This is the only type of Vinayagar where He has a human face. This is supposed to be the First Vinayagar that Lordess Parvathi created. This Vinayagar is still available in Tamil Nadu. In the Mayavaram - Thiruvarur route, just 2 kms from Poonthotam is a place called "Thilathaipathi". In the Sri Swarnavalli Ambika - Sri Muktheeswara Temple there we can see this Vinayagar.
