Dholkal Ganesha


Situated on the hilltop at a height of 3000 feet, mystery of the Ganesha idol in Dholkal is yet to be resolved. It is said that this idol lasts from the 11th century. It is presumed that the idol was established long ago during the time of Naga dynasty in the 9th or 10th century. The idol is 3 feet in length, with beautiful carvings on it, which are rare for the region. It remained unknown for many centuries until recently it has been found by an archaeologist in September 2012 in the dense forest ranges of Bailadila in Dantewada Chhattisgarh. Reaching Dholkal is quite difficult as one has to cover a trek amidst dense forests with a guide. It is considered as a place of scenic beauty with thousands of archaeological and historical secrets hidden in its torso.
