This 14 feet by 10 feet imposing Ganapathy icon, going by the name of Dodda Ganapathy, enshrined in a 12th century temple in Basavangudi, Bangalore is no misnomer, viewed from any angle, or measured by any yardstick to be precise. The ever increasing concourse of adorers right from the tattering aged couple down to the tiny tots speak volumes of compassion this Dodda Ganapathy is capable of showering on the deserving. The temple as the word goes is a marvelous contribution of the Pallavas. They adorned this region with numerous sculptural pieces for the adoration and emancipation of the people. Many shrines - some in ruins and a few in unfaded majesty are luring devotees since then.

This Dodda Ganapathy being large in heart and liberal in granting is occupying a covetable place in the hearts of general public since then. He has a passion for converting piteous cries into blissful smiles of all kinds of duhkarthis who are visiting and praying him soulfully. Among them, weaving community form majority, led by the examination going students, who invariably visit this temple for success in the exam. During March and April huge groups of students throng this shrine and place their hall tickets at the lotus feet of the Lord for success. Dodda Ganapathy keeps up his image by granting boons of the deserving and delights himself at the sight of the adorers immerse in the ocean of joy at their success.
