Ucchi Pillayar Temple is a temple that is quite popular among people and was built during the 7th century.
It is located at Tiruchirapalli on a rock that is 273 ft high from the ground. There are two temples located on the rock. One is Vinayaga temple and the other temple is Shiva temple. The temple is maintained by the Archaeological department of India because of its architectural specialty and its ancient look.
Mythologically, after the war of Ramayana epic, Rama gave an Idol of Ranganathar to Vibhishana which was not liked by the devas. So, Vinayagar came to their rescue, and when Vibhishana went to the river for a bath, he kept the idol of Ranganathan on the banks of the river and the idol could not be removed as it was not supposed to be kept down. Hence, out of anger, Vibhishana chased Vinayagar who had come there in disguise of a small boy.
Ganesha ran up the rock and Vibhishana hit hard on his head and the mark can still be seen. Then Lord Ganesha gave him Darshan and explained that Lord Ranganathan was destined to be there and he too stayed there on top of the rock.
