Half Ganesha and half Sri Anjaneyar
At Arunacheleswarar temple – Modara – infront of Nawagraga Sanithaanam-The idol is an amalgam of Sri vigneshwara and Sri Anjaneyar on the lines of Ardhanareeswara ( Siva and Parvati) and Sri Sankaranarayanan (combination of Siva and narayana).The word Aadiyantha stands for 'begining to end' (Aadi - begining & Antha - end). There is a Tamil saying 'Begin with Ganesa and end up with Anjaneya'. Many people visit the temple to get blessing of the 'Twins' against the influence of Navagrahas. The importance of the idol is that Sri Vigneswara and Sri Anjaneyar are the only two deities who are totally free from any influence over them whatsoever by the Navagrahas. It is believed that, the devotees can and do influence the Navagrahas themselves proportionate to the devoutness with which the devotees address themselves to Sri Aadiyanta Prabhu!
