  • One of the most popular temples in the city. Dedicated to Lord Ganesha. The temple's appearance is more similar to that of a North Indian temple. The disadvantage though is that its located in one of the busiest part of the city and hence its always crowded and there is noise everywhere. Hence one can't actually meditate very peacefully.
  • Very small but famous temple. Famous for breaking coconuts. There is a strong belief that if you break a coconut and ask for a wish it will fulfill soon.
