  • Jai shree Ganesha The first time i visited this temple on 07--6-2015 it attracted all of my attention. Decoration and the building compartment is designed as nicely as any one can see Lord Ganesha from the road. Here some parking issue outside the temple but the management of keeping all people in arranged queue is appreciable and nobody is missing from the lord sight. Inside there is proper seats in the temple of faith. Here photography of Lord Ganesha statue is restricted but i captured one of it but i apologized to God. There is many of shops too for Parsad. I Suggest whenever you go for pune city must visit this temple.
  • A must visit for travellers in Pune. It is situated at the prime location and is kind of hard to miss. The Ganesha idol is very divine to look at and the respect the localities have for this place is immense. You can see the gesture people do on the main road ie to remove their slippers and offer a prayer on the road. Usually the place is crowded due to a huge number of devotees. But the over all experience is organised. Do go in groups till you gain familiarity of the place so that you don't get lost. There are famous shopping places around to visit as well.
