Moti Dungri Ganesh Temple, Jaipur Reviews
Really old, prestigious in idols hierarchy, adorned with gold. This temple dates back to the era of kings and queens. It's lord Ganesha is revered the greatest in almost all of Hindu mythology. The main section of the temple gets adorned with the gold donated year on year. At least that's what they say, only God knows where the actual gold goes. I think it's not as maintained as it should be, there was a lot of dust and the floor looked dirty.
It has very nice, pleasant and peaceful environment. You suddenly started to feel lighter from inside, there you will achieve calmness and politeness in your nature. Inside the temple the front barrier/divider is totally overlapped with million of red threads tried around by the people as their wishes. On every Wednesday a huge "Mela" is been organised and the gathering is very huge in quantity.
A great temple of Lord Ganesha. It is the most revered temple in Jaipur. Among the natives of Jaipur, perhaps no one takes the new vehicle to home without a first visit to this temple. The place is very soothing and very good for devotees. It is advised to visit early morning to avoid rush. On Wednesday the place is crowded with devotees.
