This Maru Ganesha also known as Ashok Vinayak or Hanumandhoka Ganesh is in a Marutol, Kathmandu. This temple, located on the South west side of Kathmandu Durbar Square, is a part of Maru Sattal (Kasthamandap).This Ganesha is considered one of the main four Ganeshas of Kathmandu Valley. The other three Ganesh shrines being Chandra Binayak, Surya Binayak and Jal Binayak. It was customary to perform every religious function in the royal palace here. It was believed that the temple was constructed by Gunakamadeva during the 10th century. A gold roof was put in this temple in the year 1904 during the reign of Surendra Vikram Shah. Especially on Tuesdays, there is a crowd of hundreds of visitors here. In common belief, the worship of Ashok Binayak before undertaking a new venture is said to bring perfection and fulfillment. It is believed that one simply circling the temple u0026 ringing of the bell brings good luck. It was of immense importance to the royal family that during important religious u0026 cultural occasions, they used to visit this temple.
Long ago people miraculously saw a stone image of Sri Ganesh here. As the area was cramped by the Ashok trees, the people could not add pinnacle to the temple and named it Ashok Binayak, after the trees.
