SURAT: It’s the only Bappa (Ganesha) in the Diamond City for whom devotees have to take a prior appointment for darshan. Even the location of this Ganesha idol is a top secret because it is a natural rough diamond in the shape of Ganesha which is valued in crores.
Owned by Kanubhai Asodaria, chairman of Karam Group of Mahidarpura, the 182.53 carat rough diamond was mined somewhere in Africa.
The yellowish grey diamond is approximately 48 mm high, 32 mm wide and 20mm thick. It weighs 36.50 grams.
