Why to visit Maha Ganpati Temple
The Maha Ganapati Temple is located on the Mahabaleshwar Temple's east side. This temple has a beautiful backdrop, and the spiritual atmosphere adds to the temple's splendour. It is devoted to the Hindu god Ganesha, and tradition has it that it was here that Ganesha deceived Demon Ravana into stealing Atmalingam. The deity of the temple is a black stone idol of Lord Ganesha, which pilgrims visit before Mahabaleshwara Temple. People come to this quiet location to seek Lord Ganesha's blessings and to marvel at the magnificent architecture. This temple is a must-see for history fans who want to appreciate the magnificence of Dravidian architecture.
The months of August through December are the best for visiting the temple.
