  • The temple is near to main road. Good parking space is available here. The main entrance of the temple is recently built. Decoration at main entrance looks good. There is a garden besides temple where you can see rabbits. Decoration of animals in the garden is a good theme as well.
  • One best place!! Comes under 8 vinayak Ganesh ... Rich parking . Long space aroun the temple.
  • A holy place where Lord Shiva and ganpati's blessing can be received at the same time.
  • Very divine place.. read about the story... Lord Shiva worshipped Lord Ganesha before fighting demon Tripurasur . Ranjangaon Ganpati is one among the Ashtavinayak, celebrating eight instances of legends related to Ganesha. This temple's Ganpati idol was inaugurated and donated by the "Khollam" family, a goldsmith family based in Ranjangaon. The temple was built between the 9th and 10th century. The main temple looks like it was built in the Peshwa period. Nagarkhana is situated above the entrance gate. The temple facing east has huge and beautiful entrance gate. Madhavrao Peshwa made a room in the basement of the temple to keep the idol of lord Ganesh. Later on Sardar Kibe of Indore renovated it. The idol of these lord Ganesh is also named as 'Mahotkat', and it is said that the idol has 10 trunks and 20 hands.
