Binkhambi Ganapati, Kolhapur

Binkhambi Ganesh, Kolhapur

An architectural wonder, the unique feature of the Binkhambi Ganesh Mandir is that it has been constructed without the use of even a single pillar. In Marathi 'Binkhambi' means without pillars. The Ganesh idol at the Binkhambi Ganesh Mandir was discovered while repairing a well. Although the temple has been built in 1882, the idol is believed to be much older.
