Ganpatipule Temple, Ganpatipule

(4.6/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Ganpatipule Temple a centerpiece of your Ganpatipule vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Ganpatipule itinerary builder.

  • Very nice temple Swayambhu of shree ganesh
  • One of the best temple I ever visited. Temple is right on the beach. Management is very strict but helpful. Temple is clean and peaceful.
  • It's a beautiful Ganesh temple at the sea shore, worth a visit any time. Just a word of caution if you are planning to visit the beach. There might be oil sleak spills on the beach that are difficult to remove from skin/clothes/foot wear.
  • I lv Shree kshetra Ganpatiphule coz its my native place.
  • Ganapati Temple, rush on every SANKASHTHI CHATURTHI.
