Dedicated to Lord Ganesha, Eachanari Vinayagar was, as per some accounts, built way back in AD 1500. There is a mythological tale associated with this place. It is believed that when the 6-feet idol of Lord Vinayaka was being transported to Perur Patteeswarar Temple from Madurai, one of the cart axles broke. Thus, the idol it got stuck on the way, and the shrine was constructed at that same place.
