Ganesh Mandir, Jhansi

Inside the Jhansi Fort is the Ganesh Temple used by the royal family for the worship. (Click on the images for bigger picture)

This is a simple temple built in a very small area very close to the gate. In Jhansi (state: Uttar Pradesh) this is one of the most popular temple. The wall behind the temple is the inner walls of the fort. A tour of fort is not complete without a visit to this temple.

I think it would be wonderful to be able to visit this fort and temple.

Yes, almost every fort I have seen, there is a Ganesh Mandir at the entrance.

Beautiful and majestic; it feels somewhat different architecturally from the other temples you have shared the pictures off here previously.;)

Unusually, it seems quite unadorned though still quite tall.

Seems like a noted area in the fort complex, Jhansi! the link to jansi fort is interesting, to know the queens brave.

I like the way you shot this with the fort showing behind the temple.

Interesting effect with the arch. It looks a little like leadlight but up close kt's probably for protection.

Temples say so much about the people who use them, whether grand or small, they are all there for us to pray to whatever God we believe in and to rainse our aspirations.

For the royal family to worship, can ordianrypeople look in?

Jacob said...

I like your description of "simple." It doesn't look very "simple" to me - it looks quite elaborate! All your temples look quite elaborate!

Very nice!
