Ganpatipule Temple, Ganpatipule
Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
The idol at Ganpatipule Temple representing the deity Ganpatipule stands out for an interesting reason; where deities in other Indian temples face east, this deity faces west in order to guard the western gates. The attraction sits at the base of a hill, which pilgrims walk around as a sign of respect. A popular beach also flanks the temple, where tourists and locals crowd to enjoy the sun, making it a convenient stop on a larger day trip. If you want to avoid the massive crowds, arrive early in the morning, tour the temple, then choose your favorite spot on the beach without competition.

Unique situation of temple. Ganpati bappa morya
Tu sukhakarta , ganpati bappa morya
A unique temple of Lord Ganesh right on the seashore of Indian West coast. The idol is 'swayamhu' and is part of the rocky hillock behind it. If you wish to do 'pradakshina' you need to go around the hillock. There is a nice walk way for this. This pradakshina itself is a enjoyable experience as it offers a great view of sea as you go around. The beautiful beach is an added bonus when you visit Ganapati Pule. A not to-be missed place in ones vacation plan.
Visit this holy worship place and seek the blessings of shree lord ganesha. Really felt calm and positive.
Ganpati pule ganpati mandir is very beautiful mandir. And the whole rock is dedicated to lord ganesha. Bank of sea shore ganpati mamdir is very nice. Must visit.
