Furious at King Abhinandan for not giving him any offering, King Indra send Kaala in the form of demon Vignasura to create obstacles in the universe. On request of the concerned sages, Lord Ganesha battled the demon. Vignasura surrendered in the battle and it was arranged that he would be present only in places where Ganesha is not invoked. Ganesha thus took the name of Vigneshwara or Vignahara.
This Temple is part of famous Ashtavinayak Yatra
