The Trinetra Ganesha Temple is the famous and oldest temple of Lord Ganesha in Rajasthan that comprises his whole family all together in one location. The temple is about 12 km from Sawai Madhopur and also is well-developed in the Ranthambhore fort.


According to the history behind this temple, it is said that in 1299 AD, a war happened between King Hameer and Alauddin Khilji at the Ranthambore fortification. During wartime, they filled their godowns with food and other necessary things in Ranthambhore Fort, where the King dwells. As the war lasted for many years, the stored things in godowns were getting over. King Hammer was a great devotee of God Ganesh.
One night when he was sleeping, Lord Ganesh came into his dream and said that all the lacking and also problems would be over by tomorrow morning. The next day morning, an idol of Lord Ganesh with three eyes (Trinetra) stamped from one of the walls of the fort. Also, a miracle took place and the war got over while the godowns got filled again. In 1300 AD, King Hammer constructed a temple of Lord Ganesh. He placed the idol of Lord Ganesh, Riddhi Siddhi, and two sons named Shub Labh along with the idol of Mushak.


The Ranthambhore fort, in turn, is said to have got its name from two adjoining hills– Rann and Thambhore. It lies on Thambhore Hill, overlooking the Rann, and also offers some breathtaking views of the Park. The walls of the fort are about 7 kilometers in length and also include an area of nearly 4 square kilometers. All around the fort, one can see many old ruins, including palaces, temples, cenotaphs, step-wells, and houses.
The Ranthambore Fort is surrounded by massive stonewalls which are strengthened by towers and also bastions. The stone for the masonry was mined from inside the Fort and the mines were later turned into ponds for water storage.
The primary approach to the Fort lies through a narrow valley, which had four fortified gateways. Of these, only the first gate– Misradhara gate, is still standing. There are many destroyed buildings inside the Fort, with Hammers Court, Badal Mahal, Dhula Mahal, and Phansi Ghar being the most popular of them. The Fort also has many cenotaphs, temples, and also gates.


Idols of Lord Ganesha along with his wives Riddhi-Siddhi and two sons, Shubh-Labh.
