Biggest Ganesha in the World?

This picture came from Kulapati Manon Mardemootoo who is in India. He writes: “This Ganesha can be found in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, South India. Could it be the biggest Ganesha in the world?”

    Love South Indian black granite murthis and chola bronzes 🙂

    The Ganesha vigrahas in Flushing, New York temple and the Dodda Ganapati temple in Basavanagudi, Bangalore need to be compared before labeling this Great Ganapati in Coiamabtore as the biggest vigraha. Jai Ganesha.

    Ahhh, but surely it is not the size of the murthi, but the power of the life-changing energy from within it that counts. I would much rather have a 2 inch murthi that winks at me, understanding my every karma, than a gargantuan one that feels empty. Jai Ganapati

    Trying to compare is not enough to get to the answer of your question.
    As the prayer- Aum Shuklam Baradharam Vishnum….- goes on, we shift our mind to praise the Gods aspects of being divine moonlight that exist everywhere(omnipresence) and his four great shoulders etc. Can we ever imagine how big is everywhere for His Omnipresence? Of course no, because the mind cannot give that reality, its beyond the mind, that is its you, as a soul, equal to everyone and everything as Parasivam…
    I tried to answer it, though that question brings me to the worlds of infinities.:)

    It’s a really beautiful Ganesha. Thank Kulapati Manon for sharing it with us. Is this a temple or a prayer hall of some Matham?

    Yes, It’s big in Asia.
    It’s built by Devendra Kula Vellar ( Pallar / Mallar) peoples in Puliyankulam, Coimbatore district, Tamilnadu.
