Temple is nice. Both Pali and this temple can be covered same day. They should at least keep a signboard on the main road mentioning the directions to this temple. Other than that its worth visit. Parking they charge 20rs. Less crowd during weekdays.

If you have faith in God and are fond of lord Ganesha, then this temple should be in your places to visit list. It is one of the Ashtavinayaks and is located at a comfortable 2 hour drive from Mumbai/Thane. It is not much crowded...More

I liked this temple very much because of two reasons 1. One can touch feet of lord ganesha and offer puja by himeslf/ herself, no harassment by purohit/pandit like most of the temples in India. 2. Line for darshan is very well maintained and disciplined....More
