RE: Sri Lakshmi Ganapathi - doubt!

Dear Bhakthas,
I have few more doubts regarding Sri LaksmiGanapathy description given by
Sri U.Ve. Sriman Uttamur Veeraraghavacharya Swamy.

"SAPTHA:NGA E:KO:NAVIMSATHI
MUKHAH, ithyasya "chatw:ro: hastha:h, Dwou Pa:dow,
GAJAMUKHATWA:T GAJAHASTHA E:KA ITI SAPTHA:NGAH.
MADHYAMA MUKHAM GAJAMUKHA:KA:RAM. PA:RSWA DWAYE: THU
NAVA NAVA MUKHA:NI PURUSHAMUKHA:KA:RA:NI ITYE:VAMARTHA
VARNANAM NU:NAM KINCHIT PRAMA:NA MU:LAKAME:VA"

* Where is the temple for Sri Lakshmi Ganapathy?? ( i guess someone had
already posted this question)

* In the above transliteration, there is no reference to Lakshmi in Lord's
hands. Is it found in the Ma:ndu:kya Upanishad in the later part??

* what is the avatara mahima of Sri Lakshmi Ganapathy? (I mean the purpose
of this avatara)


Please forgive me if my questions seem to be innocent. 

Please clarify my doubts.
