AAYAR KODA - TEMPLE SEVA

The family traveled  to Guddattu in a 15-seater tempo traveler to attend temple seva. A distance of 500km and a 10-hour journey from Bengaluru.
Near the well inside the temple

Aayar Koda Seva (which means 'Sahasrakumbabhisheka') is a special and unique seva performed at Guddattu Vinayaka Temple,  Ayar Koda Seva starts with draining the water from the cave and then abhisheka with water is done till the water overflows from the cave, that is up to neck level of the Lord Ganapathi. This seva requires about thousand pots of water and hence Pooja is called 'Ayar Koda Seva'. Water in the pot lifted from inside the well and passed to the chain of people standing and then poured inside the cave. This is very popular seva and devotees will have to book their dates at least six months in advance.
