Constructed across holy River Kshipra, Chintaman Ganesh Temple is the biggest and the most ancient shrine in Ujjain that is dedicated to Lord Ganesha. The temple's idol is believed to be self-manifested. The deity is known as Chintaharan/Cintaman Ganesha- the one who gives an assurance of freedom from worldly anxieties, the reliever of all tensions. The consorts of Lord Ganesha, Riddhi and Siddhi, are placed here on both sides of the lord. The entire temple is built wholly of stone and in the assembly hall are beautifully carved pillars that date back to the Paramara period (9th to 14th century). Visitors can also pay their respects to the idol of Lord Vishnu in the premises of the temple.
