This is another one of Coimbatore's hidden treasures. My friend Udhay had know about this place and had been here a couple times and suggested that we should go here. Legend is that this temple is the origin of the present Bannari Amman Temple in Bannari. Situated on the outskirts of the forest, this temple is will tucked in, attracting a few visitors on most of the days. One has to travel around 5 km from the Bannari Checkpost to reach the Selva Vinayakar Temple. Vehicles have be parked there and one has to walk around 2 km to reach the Bannari Amman Temple. If you are lucky, you might see a few deer and an occasional Indian Gaur. Morning time, between 7 and 9 am, will be the apt time to visit here.
