My TripAdvisor Review No.121: Lord Suvarnaganesha Temple, Diveagar, District Raigad, Maharashtra.

“Golden Ganesh Idol not restored.”
2 of 5 starsReviewed 17 September 2015NEW
The Lord Suvarna Ganesh temple is located at Diveagar village which is about 20 km from Shrivardhan. This temple was earlier famous for its golden Ganesh idol which was stolen a few years back. The thieves were nabbed but the idol had already been melted for its gold. It has still not been restored.

When we visited in August 2015 the temple was under renovation, but we were allowed to enter and pay our respects to the omnipresent Lord Ganesh. After all it is a question of faith, and we felt the presence of the Lord in the calm and serene surroundings. There was a stone idol of the deity instead of the original golden one.

Diveagar is a quaint, clean and peaceful fishing village, but is fast becoming a tourist destination for its beautiful beaches and natural rustic surroundings. Earlier the temple was the main attraction here.
