Redi GaneshIt's believed that every person possesses some sixth sense, but only few are aware of it, and among them very few believe them or listen them.  It's really a miracle, which is beyond layman's understanding.  Reddi's very famous Ganesh Temple finds its roots in such an intuitive and interesing story. This is a vigilant deity, wakeful towards its devotees' call. The occasions like Ganesh Chaturthi, Sankashta Chatarthi one observe floods of devotees.

It's foundation story is a follows: On April 18th, 1976 one truck-driver, Sadanand Nagesh Kambali parked his truck at a particular place. This truck used to ply from Reddi's (iron & minerals) mine to harbour. That truck -driver slept there and he had a dream. In dream, God Ganesha gave him divine appearance and told him to dig at the very same place, since He(God) is residing there.  He had great faith in Lord Ganesha.

Redi Ganesh Temple As per his dream, he started digging there and to the astonishment of all the villagers, there appeared two-handed idol of Lord Ganesha, carved in solid rock. The date was 1st May 1976. After seeking omen from Gram–Devata (Village deity), it was decided to build a temple at the very spot and establish this deity. After few days, in the same area they excavated a big idol of mouse, which is a traditional vehical of Ganesha. These idols are very pretty and graceful. Today one can visit beautifully built temple and get delighted by taking "Darshan" of the adorable deity.
