Moti Dungri Temple in Jaipur is located on a small hillock and is bordered by Moti Dungri Palace. In spite of being a cultural landmark, Moti Dungri Palace cannot be viewed by the public as it is privately owned. However, the temple itself is a testimony to the progress of the architecture of Indian subcontinent. It is spread over an area of two kilometres and is adorned by three domes that purportedly represent the three major religions in India.
Apart from the intricate stone carving, the temple is known for its exquisite latticework with mythological images engraved on the marble, which offer a splendid view for art-lovers. The most beautiful part of the structure is that it resembles an old Scottish castle. The temple is dedicated to Lord Ganesha and houses the idol of deity that is purportedly 500 years. The temple itself was built in 1761 under the watchful eye of Seth Jai Ram Pallival.
