About Shri Ganesh Temple

The Shri Ganesh Temple located in Ratnada Hills in Jodhpur is thronged by a large number of devotees each year. This temple of Lord Ganesha is believed to have been here since 1459. According to a legend, this temple located 5 km from the Jodhpur city, came into existence when a teacher saw a huge statue of Lord Ganesh on the hills of Ratnada. The statue is 8 feet height and 5 feet in width. As the story goes, the big idol of Lord Ganesha emerged in this spot naturally. The idol is accompanied by Riddhi and Siddhi on both sides. They are symbolic of prosperity and accomplishment and are placed on either side. If you are lucky enough to visit the temple on special festivals or other auspicious occasions, you can witness the decorated idol with crown and ornaments and also see the Vermillion wash on the statue of Lord Ganesha.
