A venerated place for many devotees in Nagpur and the rest of India, the Ganesh Tekdi temple is all set for a rejuvenation. With the old structure- built in 1975- approaching the end of its estimated life, a new construction, inspired by the BAPS Shri Swami Narayan temple in Wathoda, Nagpur will take its place.

The work being carried out by PT Mase and Associates will ensure that none of the existing features, like the swayambhu idol, as well as the 125-year old peepal tree arching over it, suffer any damage during the reconstruction.

The new temple complex, being constructed at a cost of Rs 10 crores will have a high shikhara, carved pillars and stone cladding, much like the peculiar style of the Swami Narayan temples around the globe.

The stone for the carvings and cladding is a special variety of sandstone that will be sourced from Rajasthan.

We are certain the new temple complex will only add to the divine experience!
