The Ganga Maiya Temple of Chhattisgarh is located at Jhalmala, which is at a distance of about 60 km from the famous township of Bhilai. There is an interesting legend about this temple, which says that the a local fisherman found an idol in the water, caught in his net, but he did not retrieve the idol from the water.
Later on, a villager who belonged to the same village as the fisherman had a dream wherein the idol of the deity found in the water told him to collect it from the water and asked him to place it in a hut.
After that, a temple dedicated to the idol was built there by Bhikam Chand Tawri. The Temple Trust involves itself in organising cultural activities and medical camps for the villagers.
