Moti Doongri literally means pearl hill, owing to the hill's striking resemblance to a pearl. The city of Jaipur flourished around this small hill and visitors come here to pay homage to the famous Ganesh temple, considered to be the most important temple in Jaipur. The temple has a tale associated with it and many believe that the king of Mewar was once returning from a journey carrying the statue of Lord Ganesha with him. He made an oath that wherever his bullock stopped he would make a temple of Ganesha there. Thus, the temple came to be built at Moti Doongri. The hill also has a regal castle perched on top of it that has been made as a replica of a Scottish castle. Once an abode of Maharaja Sawai Man Singh (1922-1949), it continues to belong to the royal family.
