History

The Kumbabhishekam of the temple was in April 1979 after its expansion. Prior to this, the idol of the Lord was worshipped in another site located opposite the present premises inside the CPWD Quarters compound. The temple partakes in several social welfare activities such as providing food for the poor and also frequently organizing poojas.
The temple developed rapidly with the construction of an auditorium at the back of the Praharam located on the eastern side. Musical programs are conducted by the temple administration in the auditorium during the celebrations like Vinayaka Chathurthi. The auditorium is also rented out to other organizations for musical and cultural programs.

The Varasiddhi Vallabha Mahaganapati Temple is dedicated to Sri Ganesha as Varasiddhi Vallabha Mahaganapati. Ganapati Homam is done here on regular basis. The sanctum sanctorum of the temple houses the idol of Valampuri Varasiddhi Vinayakar along with his consort Siddhi on his left side. Another miniature idol of Ganesha that was originally worshiped is installed above the present main idol.
