Lord Ganeshji Festival - Did you know? - Part 5

Insured for Rs 1 crore

Dagdusheth Halwai Ganapati Temple is a temple dedicated to the Lord Ganesha in Pune.  The temple is popular in Maharashtra and is visited by thousands of pilgrims every year.

The main Ganesha idol is insured for a sum of 1 crore.

History of 
Dagdusheth Halwai Ganapati Temple
The temple was founded in 1893 by Dagadusheth. It is believed that he lost his son in a plague outbreak which plunged him and his wife in a state of depression. To bring him out of this state, his Guru advised him to make idols of Lord Ganesha and Shree Datta Maharaj and take care of them like he would father his son. It was then that the very first idol of Ganesha was made.

Ganpati Bappa Morya!!
