As a rule, all begin their routines, domestic or otherwise offering the first prayer to Lord Vinayaka. People pray for removal of obstacles in wedding efforts, progress in education, for early settlements in litigation pending in courts, frequent repairs in vehicles leading to accidents.

During the fourth century, a king Somara Vallaban brought 1008 Brahmins from the Narmada River region to conduct a Yajna. Yet their number was short by one. Lord Vinayaka appeared there in the guise of a Brahmin and helped completing the Yajna in order. Hence, the Vinayaka is named Aayirathu Enn Vinayaka – 1008th Vinayaka. It is said that Vinayaka stayed in the Arumugamangalam village itself offered to him as Dakshina.
