Ranjangaon Ganpati Temple, Pune

(4.7/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Visit the divine Ranjangaon Ganpati Temple, a Buddhist monastery with an imposing entrance gate featuring statues of Jay and Vijay (demigod gatekeepers) on the sides. Built in the ninth or 10th century, the temple--the last of eight on the Ashatavinayak Yatra pilgrim route--celebrates the deity Mahaganapati, one of eight incarnations of the Hindu god Ganesha. Admire the east-facing idol sitting in a cross-legged posture, with a broad forehead, 20 arms, and 10 trunks. You can easily access the site, which has a parking lot and charges an entrance fee.
