But the vinayaka sannidhi in kanchipuram was installed
recently, about 3 decades back by sri
chandrashekarendra saraswati swamigal of kanchi
kamakoti peetham. The idol in that sannidhi does not
have oordhva pundra vinayaka but a vibhuthi dhara
ganesha. It may not be propoer to call him thumbikkai
azhwar (vishvaksena).
