🛕 Gnanasundara Vinayagar Temple is a Hindu Temple dedicated to Lord Ganesha located at Mylapore in Chennai City in Tamilnadu. This is a 400 years old popular Temple. The temple is located at the junction of the St Mary’s Road and Ramakrishna Math Road.
🛕 The main deity here was once lying along other stones at the Dharga in Ramakrishna Math road. When Arcot Nawab was going through this route, his horse was tied to this stone but the horse got the Valippu. When the horse was untied, it came back to normalcy but when it was tied again to the stone, it got the Valippu again. They then identified the stone as the Vinayagar idol and this temple was built.
