Lord Ganesha Temples

Chintamani Temple, Ujjain

 

The temple is built across the Shipra on the Fatehabad railway line. The Ganesh idolenshrined here is supposed to be swayambhu - born of itself. The temple itself is believed to be of considerable antiquity. Riddhi and Siddhi, the consorts of Ganesha, are seated on either side of Ganesha. The artistically carved pillars in the assembly hall date back to the Parmar period. Worshippers throng to this temple because the deity here is traditionally known as Chintaharan Ganesh meaning "the assurer of freedom from worldly anxieties".

This Ganesha stone temple is located in the middle of the market, and dates back to 11th and 12th centuries a.d. when the Paramaras ruled over Malwa (Madhya Pradesh).
The finely-carved stone pillars in the assembly hall and the white shrine define the age-old sanctity of the temple.

The Ganesha idol enshrined in this temple is supposed to be swayamabhu (born of itself). Also called Vighneshwara, the moderator of grief, Ganesha is always the first to be worshipped in the Hindu pantheon, lest he decide to sow obstacles in the devoteesí path. His consorts, Ridhhi and Siddhi, flank Chintaman, the assuager of all worries. Locally, Ganesha is also referred to as Chintaman.
