Sri Siddhivinayaka Temple, Hattiangadi

Sri Siddhivinayaka Temple of Hattiangadi is an eight century temple. The temple has undergone several renovations and in 1997 it was once again renovated and was built in granite.  So what we see today is the new structure.



The temple is devoted to Lord Ganapathi and this is the only temple where he sports a jata-hair and it is left loose at the back. 



There are also beautifully carved 32 Lord Ganesha idols installed in the temple premises. One can see the Lord in various styles.



Just outside the temple on its rear side is yagna shall of the temple and it can be seen in the above image.



Hattiangadi, about 8 km to the northeast of Kundapur in the Udupi district.

Interesting that the temple has had so many renovations. The last photo seems to have a pile of chopped wood. Maybe a garden being designed round this?
