Private temple of royal family

The temple at Moti Dungri is a private temple of the royal family. It is not opened to the public. The cab driver told that it is open to public on Shivaratri day.There are two temples at the foothill. One is Birla or Lakshmi Narayan temple and another is Ganesh temple. Both are open to public. From these temple one can view the temple at Moti Dongri.The temple does not go with the castle look of Moti Dongri. It is painted white. There is a saffron flag flying on the top

Best place to offer worship, seek blessing from God and have wonderful prasadi

In india, Lord Ganesha is known for seeking his blessing before or initiating any new good things. That is why, this Lord ganesha Temple is famous in Jaipur & has been known to many. The visuals during Ganesha Chaturthi & devotion from people in order to offer worship & seek blessing from Lord Ganesha on the day makes one awestruck. Since childhood days, I have been going to offer worship to Lord ganesha & seek his blessings in everything I do. One feels blessed upon seeing him & offering prayers. The famous besan ka laddoo in his prasadi is something I crave for & haven't found anywhere.

A great place for religious people

It is a temple dedicated to Lord Ganesha. It is usually overcrowded, specially on Wednesdays. A great place for religious people. The front of the temple boasts of quite a variety of street food.
