Location: A devotee’s delight, Khajrana (Ganesh Temple) is an important religious center that is located in Indore. Built under the reign of Rani Ahalya Bhai Holkar, this temple is visited by a large number of devotees all around the year.
Description: Historians believe that to protect the lord’s idol from the Mughal ruler, Aurangzeb, it was hidden into a well. Later on, in the year 1735, the idol was taken out and a temple was constructed at that place by the Holkar dynasty’s ruler. Locals have great faith in this Ganesh temple and it is also believed that a person’s wishes get fulfilled after praying here.

Tourists as well as local residents can become a part of the grand celebrations. Therefore while on a trip to Indore, visit this temple to seek Lord Ganesha’s blessings.
