SRI MAAPILLAI VINAYAKA
Lord Vinayaka is fondly called as Maapillai Vinayaka and few temples are also dedicated to him in that name. In these temples, similar to the newly wedded bridegroom, Lord Vinayaka appears very beautifully and neatly dressed with costly garments, and his body is decorated with precious golden ornaments. He can be seen along with his consorts Ma Riddhi and Ma Siddhi. Maapillai is a Tamil word and it means Bridegroom.
The word Maapillai would be very often shared in between friends especially in Tamil Nadu, in order to express their strong bondage, love and affection on each other.
