Ganga Temple Overview

Ranked 2 of 9 sightseeing in Bharatpur

Ganga Temple, situated in the heart of Bharatpur city, is one of the most beautiful temples in the state of Rajasthan. The construction of this temple was commenced by Maharaja Balwant Singh in 1845; however, it took almost 90 years to complete it. After completion, an idol of deity Ganga was placed in the temple by Brijendra Singh, who was the fifth descendant of Balwant Singh. The temple thus came to be known as Ganga Temple.

Architecture of this temple depicts a confluence of Rajput, Mughal and South Indian styles. The walls and pillars of this temple are adorned with beautiful carvings, while the entrance is marked with the statues of Lord Krishna, Laxmi Narayanji and Shiva Parvati. Inside the temple sits the beautifully decorated idol of Goddess Ganga with a massive image of a crocodile. Devotees visiting the temple are offered holy water from the river Ganga.

The temple is most visited by devotees during the festivals of Gangashaptami and Ganga Dussehra. Positioned at a convenient location in Bharatpur, the temple can be easily reached from anywhere in the city by a taxi, an auto rickshaw, or even a cycle rickshaw.

Very beautiful temple

Situated at city's heart, very beautiful temple of maa Ganga. Its a very famous place for local public and daily you will find 100s of person in the evening. The scenery is very beautiful there, sufficient space for roaming. 3 km away from bus stand, 2 km away from railway station, auto available easily.

One of the very few Ganga temples

The temple just like Bharatpur city has an old world charm. The temple in pink stone, typical of Rajasthan, was ornamental due to carvings, clean and impressive. The fog added the mystic touch to an overall dreamscape like place.
