2. History of the ancient Ganapati temple

Complying with the advice of Maharshi we got the following information.

2 A. 5500 years ago both Bhagwan Shrikrushna and the
Pandavs performed ritualistic worship (puja) of this ‘Siddhivinayak’ Ganapati

‘A village called Ganapatipura is situated 50 kilo meters away from Karnavati, the capital city of Gujarat. A self-arisen (swayambhu) and the oldest Ganapati temple in Gujarat is situated here. The temple priest told us, “5500 years ago Shrikrushna and the Pandavs had performed ritualistic worship of this Ganapati. It is said that after this worship Shrikrushna lived in and ruled Dwarka for several years. The name of this Ganapati is Siddhivinayak. As Bhagwan Shrikrushna worshiped this Ganapati, He is referred to as ‘Ganesh Dwarka’. Whenever the Pandav’s would go to meet Shrikrushna in Dwarka they would first pay respects to this Ganapati.

2 B. A farmer, while ploughing the field found
a self-arisen Ganapati idol, which was installed at a place
as per the wish of  Deity Ganapati. This place is known as Ganapatipura!

For several years in the Kaliyug no one was aware about this temple. 800 years ago in the village of ‘Kot’ near Karnavati, when ploughing his field a farmer found a self-arisen idol of Ganapati with a right-sided trunk.

The idol was embellished with earrings, gold anklets, crown and waist belt. Soon after its discovery people from neighboring villages came together and each one wished that it be installed in his own village. Finally, with everyone’s consent it was placed in a bullock cart without a bullock which started moving at once. At the point where it stopped by itself the idol descended from the cart on its own. It was then installed at this very spot. This place is called Ganapatipura. As the idol is smeared with a mixture of ghee and shendur it is vermilion in colour.’
