The Ganapati Temple or Chitti Vinayagar temple is located 3 kilometers from Valparai and is run by Jayasree Tea Industries. The idol of Ganapathi is similar to the one worshipped at the “Siddhi Vinayakar temple” at Mumbai.
The idol housed here at the Ganapati Temple has another interesting feature, it is carved entirely from one single block of marble. The temple is set amidst tea plantations that spread as far as the eyes can see. In that aspect, it is similar to the Balaji temple which is located in Valparai. A visit to the temple is bound to leave the mind at ease. Set against the backdrop of serene hills and tree plantations, the ambience of the temple is known to cure the weariest of minds.
