  1. I was regularly visited this temple during my stay at Cbe (1995~1999). At present I am far away physically from Echanary Vinayagar darshan but my mind always praying and thinking with this vinayagar.
    You are well maintaing this temple and we appreciate for that.
    Kindly provide the vinayagar pictures in net and allow to download for all the devotees.
