This Ganapati Temple is simple, yet beautiful. It’s among the popular holy places to visit in Pune. It’s also among the richest temples in the state. Many devotees donated gold and money.

Devotees come here for daily aarti, pooja and other rituals, and offer coconuts to get the blessings. You can glimpse the Ganesha idol and watch the rituals even from the outside. The 7.5 feet tall Ganesha idol is adorned with gold.

The temple also celebrates many Hindu festivals. And the grandeur of the celebrations attracts even celebrities to get blessings from the lord.

But it looks at its best during the annual 10-day Ganeshotsav festival. During these days, the entire temple is decorated with flowers and colourful lights for the grand celebrations. Activities like music concerts and spiritual bhajans are also organized.
