About Dodda Ganeshana Gudi

Dodda Ganeshana Gudi Bangalore is a temple built by Kempe Gowda 1 of the erstwhile Mysuru Dynasty atop a hilly area called Basavanagudi in Bangalore. The temple is dedicated to Lord Ganapathi and named aptly as Dodda Ganeshana Gudi after the main idol here, which is 18 ft tall and 16 ft wide. It is also called by Hindus as the Shakti Ganapathi Temple and the Sathya Ganapathi temple. A famous and old tradition here is to bathe the idol in butter weighing 100 kg. Ganesha festival season is the peak season for tourists to visit and take part in the festivities and immersion of the idol on the last day. The best time to visit Bangalore would be between the months of September to March as the temperature is pleasant.
