Mythology says, There was a day, when Ganesh's stomach was about to explode since he stuffed a lot of his favourite meals.

Tying his stomach with a snake was the last resort he had.

Hence is the design of this unique 8-feet tall idol.

People here believe that, when a coin tossed opposite here, falls in the water, your wishes come true!

Yes, the inner portions of the shrine are filled with water. Apparently it is said that no one can go in during the monsoons.

But, you wouldn't want to miss out on this beautiful place.
