Sowthadka Shree Maha Ganapathy temple, Dakshin Kannada.

Lord Mahaganapathy  here , sits majestically  in the open  courtyard on a large platform  in  lush green surroundings. Serenity envelops this divine place and renders a unique experience.

The image of Ganesha, is carved out of black granite stone and is  fully decked up with bright coloured floral garlands. He is visible to devotees  right from the entrance of the temple. Scores of bells varying in size are hung all around the temple and they are offerings made by the devotees to their dear God.The air reverberates with the sound of bells. The vibrations created by the chimes, chanting by the priests, the fervent prayers by the devotees standing all around will help one to make a divine connect with the Lord easily.  

This temple is in Bellthangadi district near Kokkada village in Dakshina Kannada and 16 Kms from Dharmasthala and about 30 Kms from Kukke Subramanya but many are unaware of this temple's existence.More details here.

Other famous temple of Ganesha-   Madanantheswara  Siddhi Vinayaka temple in Kasargod, Kerala. Gokarna and Karpagavinayagar temple in Pillayarpatti, Tamil nadu

Thank you for bringing out to the notice of your readers the lesser known temples. MahaGanapthi in black granite stone must be grand and inspiring.
