Idukku Pillayar Shrine

The shrine is known as Idukku Pillayar. The name Pillayar is one given to Ganesha (remover of obstacles and Lord of auspiciousness). The Idukku Pillayar Shrine is in the form of a narrow passageway between two columns. Legend has it that successfully crawling through the narrow tunnel from front to back gives liberation, whereas successfully scrambling through from back to front will fulfil ones worldly wish. The Shrine is located near the Kubera Lingam on the outer pradakshina path.

It is really awesome experience. on the instance of looking at could not make my mind that one can come through it. But Amazingly, a person weighing around 100 kgs has easily come through.
