Garh Ganesh Temple

Located amidst the picturesque hillocks of Amer, the Grah Ganesh Temple was built by Sawai Jai Singh II. As the name suggests the temple is dedicated to Lord Ganesha who is depicted in his child form without his trunk. The temple was built prior to the establishment of Jaipur city and its idol is placed in such a way that it could be viewed from the City Palace with binoculars. The temple is much frequented by devotees throughout the year along with an annual 5 day fair during Ganesh Chaturthi (August-September) and the festival of Diwali (October – November). The Temple, apart from its spiritual connection also offers some panoramic views of the Jaipur city and is a great place to view the city lights on Diwali. The Jal Mahal is also viewed from the top and looks enchanting during the evening.
