My TripAdvisor Review No.144: Vigneshwara Temple, Ozar, Maharashtra.

“Dedicated to the Elephant Headed God, Lord Ganesha.”
4 of 5 starsReviewed yesterdayNEW
The Vigneshwara Temple is one of the most beautiful temples dedicated to the elephant headed god, Lord Ganesha. It also forms part of the Ashtavinayak yatra of the eight naturally formed idols of Lord Ganesha in Maharashtra, around Pune. Ozar, where this temple is located is about 90 km from Pune.

Lord Ganesha defeated the demon of obstacles, Vignasura, hence the name Vigneshwara.

The temple is clean and serene, with high walls surrounding it. The river Kukadi flows nearby and one can enjoy an evening boat ride on the river. There are lodgings available near the temple, for an overnight stay. Ozar itself is a small rural town where one can enjoy a quiet getaway.
