Though every place has its own history, significance and reason to visit; but, few places that you should not miss while visiting Ranthambore are Trinetra Ganesh Temple and Rajiv Gandhi Regional Museum of Natural History.

Trinetra Ganesh Temple is one of the oldest temples in Rajasthan which is situated inside the Ranthambore Fort. In the entire world, this is the only Lord Ganesha's Temple that houses his entire family wherein, his statue consists of three eyes. There is a deep history behind this temple due to which it is well known for fulfilling people's wishes. Back in 1299, a war between King Hameer & Ala-ud-din Khilji happened inside Ranthambore Fort. King was the biggest devotee of Lord Ganesha and always offered his prayers to him even during the battle days. One day, Ganesha appeared in his dreams and said soon he will be free from all the troubles and battles and suddenly in the morning, a symbol of lord Ganesha naturally appeared on the walls of the fort and that day, war ended all of sudden and on its own.

While visiting this temple, you must also attend the Aarti which takes place at different timings like:

It is in winter that one can have the ultimate Ranthambore experience and this includes visiting ancient temples like Trinetra Ganesh Temple and Chamatkar Ji Temple, and having a serene and cultured encounter with the region’s traditions.

Rajiv Gandhi Regional Museum of Natural History is another most beautiful place to visit as its the country’s fourth regional Museum in Natural History with exhibits on flora, fauna, animals, biodiversity and geology of India's western regions.

While exploring the places we suddenly came across a very small Shiv ji temple, Amareshwar Mahadev Temple. It is a hidden gem as it is situated at a distance of 3 km from the entry gate of Ranthambore National Park. The temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva and the environment of the temple is so peaceful that you would not want to return home. The ambience, atmosphere and location is pleasant to eyes that one can easily spend long hours here.”
