There was a small temple in the current location of the temple was found suitable for construction of temple.

Sri. B M Devarajappa the temple president had gone on visit to Malai Mahadeshwara Hill and found a small temple of Sri Balamuri Vinayaka. He made up his mind to construct Sri Balamuri Siddhi Vinayaka Temple. From there on like-minded friends gathered to fulfill the wish of constructing temple. Initially started in a small garbagudi with regular Pooja, Bhajans and Celebration of festivals.

In the year 1996 on the special occasion of Ganesh Chathurthi, the temple was inaugurated with grand celebration & establishment of Lord Ganesha’s idol. This was dream-come-true feeling for the friends who began this divine task of constructing temple. Thereon festive celebration started on regular basis in Sahakarnagar. However, small temple was not sufficient to gather the huge crowd. Post 1997 as & when the area developed so was the development of temple. Then a committee was formed with trustees for further development of temple to accommodate large crowd of devotees. Large hearted residents of Sahakarnagar donated for good cause of construction of temple.
