Bada Ganpati temple is a popular one, for it houses the largest Ganapati statue in the world. From crown to foot the idol measures eight meters in length. Unlike other temples, the idol here is not made of a hard stone, rather it is made of an odd mix of limestone, jaggery, bricks, mud from the stables of elephants and horses, besides holy soil and water collected from many holy places. The idol is as hard as it was centuries ago and, that, it does not show any sign of disintegration or weathering is a mystery.
