Whenever Lord Ganesha arrives on Ganesh Chaturthi, it is celebrated with great pomp not only in India but also in many countries around the world. Even today this festival is celebrated with great pomp. You must have seen huge Ganesha idols in India, especially in Mumbai, which people worship. But there is also a country where most of the people are Muslims, but Lord Ganesha (700 years old Ganesha idol) is worshiped here. What’s more surprising is that this country has an active volcano (Lord Ganesha Statue on Volcano), at the mouth of which an idol of Lord Ganesha has been installed. Looking at that statue, it seems that God himself is sitting there protecting people.
According to a report by Times Now, this 700-year-old Lord Ganesha statue is located in Mount Bromo (Indonesia Lord Ganesha Statue Volcano) in Indonesia, which has an active volcano called Gunung Bormo. Smoke started coming out of it and fire started burning. The mouth of this volcano houses an idol of Lord Ganesha, which is believed to be 700 years old by the local people.
