  • Great place to find peace of mind. The aura of the place is amazing it feels like home here. The decoration on various occasions is eye catching it feels like there is always a festive vibe at this place. Moreover the Ganpati looks just amazing. I love this place and I could never say no to going there. Though there are insanely long queues during festivals but the management of crowd is so well that it would never take you more than an hour to reach the temple even if you are at the end of the queue. My suggestion is this place should be in your must visit list if you are coming to Pune.
  • The temple structure and design is so well build and designed... inside temple everywhere lights and gold will shine if you look at Ganesh idol you will feel relaxed... not sure about others but I do feel relaxed... all the times lots of rush to this temple as it is located in the center of market so traffic on road people but once you go inside all will be worth after seeing all
  • Very famous Ganpati temple in Pune. Usually there is very less rush here. We can see Ganpati idol from main road too as they have kept glass on wall. Temple is well maintained and very nice place. On Tuesday and Ganpati festival there is lot of rush here. Must visit temple. Located in market area.
  • Religious place. Hindu Temple. Great ambience. Centrally located. Parking is an issue though. Street outside is too narrow.
  • Historical temple... crowded place... good place to see Ganpati Temple and it's construction...also have shopping area... morning time is less crowded otherwise we have to wait for long time... nearly all India people come here to see temple...have hug asset
