Ganpatipule is known as the most important place for the pilgrims on the western sea coast of India. The legend says that it is one of the eight gates of India, mythically known as Ashtadwar. The place is a famous religious destination blessed by nature. The legend says that the god Ganesha itself came in one of resident’s dream and told him to build a temple for him as he wished to reside there. The hill behind the temple is actually an avatar of the great Ganesha itself. So people have to worship it, too. Recently the temple has been renovated by the trust. The records say that Maratha king Shivaji visited the temple and helped it to get renovated. Thereafter he appointed a person to look after it.
Sankashti Chaturthi is considered as the holy day to be there. So the place can be seen crowded on this occasion. Now the temple has been computerized in order to maintain it. The security of temple is also above par. There is an accommodation available by the trust with a nominal charge. The electricity is provided to the temple using green sources like windmill and solar cells. Apart from this spiritual attraction, Ganpatipule is blessed by various scenic beauties. Bhandarpule beach is quite near from there, which is a magnificent place. People are advised not to go into deep waters here.
