INTRODUCTION

Finally we come to Ganesh Mandirs. Although his place is deemed the highest, as evidenced by the TRIO too recognising and revering him with utmost soulful devotion, oddity again surfaced. Maharastra has monopolised this supreme deity to the extent that there is no house, even in hamlets without some sot of his representation on the lintel, in the Puja rooms, leave alone the towns and cities throbbing with Ganesh Sampradaya in the well-built and superbly maintained temples. Alas' again in some North Indian states, he is given a nominal place, next to that of some sects taking precedence over everything as a matter of fact. Indeed his icon or painted picture does find a place in all the Saivate temples, but not, proportionate to his stature and status. Isn't then the sectarianism to be pointed out? And it is the only real cause for such de-recognition of his supremacy. But in no way denigration or defacing attempt of his image is discernable. I essayed consciously and labouriously to give a fair representation of his mandirs in every state within the available limited means. but not satisfied wholely.
