History of the Sri Senpaga Vinayagar Temple
Sri Senpaga Vinayagar Temple's history dates back to 1850. A statue of the lord Vinayagar was discovered by a pond. The Chempaka tree by the pond gave a unique identity to the Sri Senpaga Vinayagar Temple. The original temple was a simple structure having an attap roof. Mr. Ethirnayagam Pillai, a Tamil designed the original temple.

The Sri Senpaga Vinayagar Temple exhibits the Chola architectural style. The Cholas built famous temples in South India. A distinctive feature of the Sri Senpaga Vinayagar Temple is the Rajagopuram tower at the entrance to the temple which exhibits the Chola architectural style of South India. The temple was originally built in the middle of the 19th century but it was re-constructed after cracks started appearing in the temple walls and concrete chunks fell from the temple's ceiling. The temple's most prominent feature is inside the main temple-hall.

There are four granite pillars each having 8 sculptures making up Lord Vinayagar's thirty-two different forms. These forms of the Lord are typical to this temple only and are not found in any Vinayagar temple including India. There are numerous colorful murals in the center of the main temple hall describing stories of the Lord Vinayagar right from his birth time to the time he got wedded. There is a dome known as the Ashtalakshmi dome featuring nice paintings of the Goddess Lakshmi's 8 different forms.
