There is a temple in Alwar,Rajasthan, where the Ganesha Idol has number ‘1010’ marked.
This is assumed to have been the year the temple was built.
The Shiva Temple in Alwar , legend has it, that it was built by the Pandavas and the outer walls were built by Raja Jai Singh .
This Temple is declared as a Protected site by The Archeological Survey of India,
“It is also believed that the temple was built by the Pandavas. The popular religious belief tells us that Lord Shiva opposed Raja Jai Singh’s army from conquering this land. It actually prompted the king to offer his prayers to the Lord. He also took the decision of appointing priests to offer regular worship in the temple. As a part of it, a lam would always burn in the honor of Lord Shiva. On visiting the temple, you will also be able to see small, oval shaped structures in front of the temple. These mark the graces of the various priests who were appointed for worshipping the Lord. It will be a unique experience to see those graves at the foot of the stairs of the temple.”
