Located on Pollachi Main Road in Coimbatore, Eachanari Vinayagar Temple is dedicated to Hindu God Ganesha. The temple is around 10 km from Coimbatore on the road from Kovai to Pollachi. Legend has it that the Murti of Ganesha worshipped in the temple was meant to be installed at Patteswarar Temple in Perur but the vehicle carrying the murti got stuck at Eachanari and the deity got installed here.

The most important ritual in the temple is Ganapathy Homam, which is conducted every day at 5:30 AM.

Every day there is also the procession of the deity atop a golden chariot.

The temple observes all important Tamil festivals and the most popular being the Vinayaka Chaturthi (August – September).
