This post is with reference to my previous post named Gold of Pune with a small quiz.
Surprisingly Diane AZ and Gaelikaa got it right; it's Ganesha. Gaelika lives in India. But it was still a surprise! However Diane with the right answer was a total surprise! Divsi got it exactly, it's Ganesha's statue of Dagdusheth.
This temple holds much value for the Puneites [citizens of Pune], and for the uncountable people all over the country. Divsi, from a nearby city named Mumbai [financial capital of India, previously known as Bombay] must have visited the temple at least once in her life time, I guess :)
Below are the photos of Dagdusheth Ganpati. Don't forget to notice the mouse at the end. It has much relevance as it's the lord Ganesha's carrier/vehicle. Every GOD in India has a carrier. Did you know this?
Enjoy the rare photos…
