Ganapati in Ganapati Peth, Sangli

This Ganapati temple in Sangli is one of the famous temples in south Maharashtra for its artistic construction. The temple is built out of black stone made available from the hills of Jyotiba. The premise of the temple is huge, covering a sprawling two acres. It comprises of a platform, an excellent hall and a nagarkhana. The door of the sanctum is carved out of different colored natural wood. The idol of Lord Ganesh was consecrated in the central temple in 1843. The temple is located on eastern bank of river Krishna.

The poojamurti of the Lord is made out of copper and is astride a lion. The utsavmurti is very beautiful and taller than the poojamurti. It is located in such a way that it is visible from any road in Ganapati Peth. On some specific days, the dawning sun’s rays illuminate the idol’s face.
