Ganapathiyar Kovil is a temple which was built 900 years ago. In a dilapidated condition today, the temple had beautiful carvings and inscriptions written in Tamil on its high granite pillars. This temple was made by the Chetti community which still lives in the region around the temple.

Built by the Chetti community of Tamil Nadu, this 900-year-old structure is almost in ruins today, although the carvings and inscriptions on its granite pillars are still visible. Tamil inscriptions on walls and pillars tell the story of the Pattunool Shetties, he community known for weaving the textile known as kanjirapally katcha.

This temple is located close to Kottayam in Kanjirapally. A great place to pray and experience serenity when you are travelling to places around Kottayam.
