    Adi Vinayak Ganesha
    We have always prayed to Lord Ganesh and visited temples where his idol is present in the form of a Gajmukh (an elephant-head). But do you there is one unique temple in India (and the world) where Lord Ganesha is seen with a human face and is worshipped like that?
    This one of a kind temple is located in Tamil Nadu, near Thilatharpanapuri (around 2 km away from Koothnur). It is known as Adi Vinayaka temple. Because of the human face, this Adi Vinayaka's divine form is also known as 'Nara Mukha' Vinayaka. This was Ganesha’s divine form before he became the ever popular Gajanana or the elephant-faced deity.
