The Khajrana Ganesh Temple is a pilgrimage center in Indore in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh, dedicated to Ganesha. Built during the reign of the Holkar dynasty.
This temple was built in 1735 by Queen Maharani Ahilyabai Holkar of the Holkar dynasty. Devotees surround the temple and tie a string to pray to Lord Ganesha for the successful completion of his work. The ancient idol in the temple is said to have been seen in a dream by a local priest, Pandit Mangal Bhatt. Later, Ahilyabai Holkar excavated said idol from under the ground and installed it in a temple. From where she took off the idol, there is a well, which is right in front of the temple.
