The 800 year old temple is dedicated to the 3 eyed incarnation of Lord Ganesh known by the Hindus as ‘Trinetra Ganesh’. The temple is located within the confines of the majestic Ranthambore Fort and contains the images of Lord Ganesha and his complete family. The design of the temple is a great example of Hindu temple architecture and features an ornamental ‘Chatri’, a signature feature of Rajput buildings. Although the temple is open all day, it is best visited during the aartis (prayers), which feature several devotional hymns. The aartis conducted in the temple are divided into 5 rituals.
- Prabhat Aarti – Conducted during the sunrise.
- Sringar Aarti – 9:00 AM
- Bhog – 12:00 PM
- Sandhya Aarti – 5:45 PM (winters) and 6:30 PM (summers)
- Shayan Aarti – 8:00 PM
Wednesday, being the day of Lord Ganesh, is a good day to visit the temple. Special prayers and rituals are conducted along with the distribution of sweets and savory items.
