Sri Karpaga Vinayagar Temple, Frankfurt
This village derives its name from the image of Lord Ganesha, known as Karpaga Vinayaka, carved on the wall of an ancient rock-cut temple. The Lord is seated and appears with only two arms, the left being on the right holding a modhaka. The trunk is turned to the right. There is no sacred thread on this Ganesha sculpture.
The word Vinayaga means “Incomparable Leader” Devotees worshipping Valamburi Vinayagar seated facing towards north, will be blessed with all kinds of wealth. Kubera, the Lord of Wealth is said to have worshipped at this temple. Goddess Laxmi, Saraswathy and Durga are found together in this temple.
The three Lingams – Thiruveeswarar, Marudheeswarar and Senchadeswarar and the three Goddesses – Sivagami amman, Vadamalar Mangaiamman and Soundara Nayaga Amman all appear together at the same place and bless the devotees.
It is believed that by worshipping Kathyayini Amman at this temple women get relived of Sevva Dosham which causes delay in marriage.
This charming Hindu temple houses a distinguished statue of Karpaga Vinayagar different from the usual 36 images of Ganesha which was carved out from a single block of granite.
The Sri Sakthi Vinayagar Temple is frequented by devotees who firmly believes that Vinayagar will aid them in their time of need, and by curious admirers who want to learn about the beautiful tales of Vinayagar and pray for their personal needs.
After transferring Sri Sakthi Vinayagar Temple to its current location in 1991 to a land given by the government, the Hindu temple was consecrated in 1993.
