Sri Siddhi Vinayakar Temple, Kerala

Sri Siddhi Vinayakar Temple is located 1 km South-West of Sulthankada. In this 21 years old temple Lord Vinayaka is worshipped as the prime deity. Though the temple is located near the public cemetery of native Tamils and is a top attraction for the local youth.

During 1978, a person dreamt of an elephant calf running around near the area where the temple is located. But the other people ignored his dream. Later a native found an elephant-shaped stone and installed the same on Peettham. This statue is worshipped as Yoga Ganapathi.
