Manmandir Ghat
Manmandir Ghat

Man Mandir Ghat, dating back to 1600 and renovated in 19th century, was built by Raja Savai Man Singh and the Ghat is named after him. Man Mandit Ghat, originally known as Somesvara Ghat, has a fine balcony at the north end of the Ghat. A small observatory founded by Raja Jai Singh of Jaipur is also seen in this Ghat.
This Ghat houses many famous temples such as Sthuladanta Vinayaka, Rameshwara and Someshwara temples. Someshwara lingam is the replica of Someshwara lingam in Somanath (Gujrat), one of the nine Jyotirlingas. Many Hindu devotees visit this Ghat to offer prayers to Someshwar. Manmandir ghat was built in 1600 but was poorly restored in the 19th century. The northern corner of the ghat has a fine stone balcony and Raja Jai Singh of Jaipur erected one of his unusual observations on this ghat in 1710.
