about dholya ganapati

Dholya Ganapati is a temple dedicated to Lord Ganesha. It was built in 17th Century according to Hemadpanti architecture by the ruler of that time, Raja Bhoja, to protect the Wai town from any calamity or enemies. Lord Ganesha has an immense importance in Maharashtra and this Ganapati temple is really famous for the huge statue of Lord Ganesha at the banks of River Krishna. The name of the temple 'Dholya Ganapati' is derived because of the size of the deity's statue which is 10 ft tall and 8 ft in width and the word 'Dholya' means huge or fat in Marathi language.
