About Temple

The idol Lord Ganesh named as Varda Vinayayak was build in 1725 during Peshwa rule. The structure of the temple looks like a ordinary house. The mysterious idol of lord Ganesh was found under the well behind temple, and this is the main center of attraction.  There is a Gomukh towards north. Holy water comes out of it.As Konkan railways is function ,this is the most easiest way to reach there. And by road you can reach the place through S.T. bus from Karjat, Khopoli and Thane.

To reach here from Pune one needs to go from Pune - Lonavala - then after Khopoli a way goes to Mahad. Distance from Pune to Mahad is 84 kms.

The place is very nice and can visit any time round the year.
