Tekdi Ganesh temple now grade A tourist site (Nagpur)

 

On Monday, the Maharashtra government elevated the status of Nagpur’s Tekdi Ganesh temple to Grade A tourism site, a significant recognition for its cultural and historical significance. Formerly classified as a Grade C tourism site, it now holds national monument status, paving the way for central government funding for its development. With this upgrade, the temple becomes eligible for central funds, facilitating the execution of the Nagpur Improvement Trust’s INR 170 crore plan for its beautification and enhancement of its surroundings.

Renowned for its 300-year-old legacy, the temple stands as a testament to Nagpur’s rich heritage, with legend tracing its origins back to Hemandri Pandit. Positioned atop a hillock overlooking Nagpur railway station’s west side and in close proximity to the Madhya Pradesh State Transport Corporation bus stand, the temple holds both historical and architectural significance, making it a cherished landmark in the city.
