While the construction was in progress, it was learnt that a Vinayakar Idol (Valampuri Vinayakar - said to be rare) was lying in a factory at Ambattur Industrial Estate. The owner Mr.Ramakrishanan (since no more) voluntarily came forward to donate this  idol for installation in the proposed Temple.

A society was formed as “Karpagam Gardens Sat Sangh” during April, 1984 to manage the make shift temple activities and also to supervise the construction of the proposed Temple.

It was decided to perform the KUMBHABHISHEKAM on 27th January, 1985.The Yaga Sala Puja, Homam etc., were performed on 25th January, 1985, and on 26th January the Idols were installed at the respective places as planned.
