Dodda Ganapathi Temple - Review

Located at the famous Bull temple road in Bangalore, the Dodda Ganapathi temple is yet another jewel in the temple trail of the city. Dodda Ganesha Temple at Basavanagudi was constructed by Kempegowda I, the founder of Bangalore. It is believed that while taking a stroll here, Kempegowda found a number of rocks and one of the boulders that had a shape of Ganesha engraved on them. Thereafter, Kempegowda ordered his sculptors to convert the shape into a massive as well as fantastic single stone idol of Lord Ganesha. Standing 18 ft tall in height and 16 ft wide, this idol looks impressive and huge.
