Varad Vinayak Temple, Durshet
The Varad Vinayak Temple is a huge attraction found near the small town of Durshet. It was built almost three centuries back in 1725 AD at the hands of Peshva Sardar Ramji Mahadev Varad Vinayak Biwalkar.
The temple has worn off over time and may not be quite appealing from the outside. But once you venture in, look out for the beautiful 25 feet pinnacled dome. It houses two idols of Varad Vinayak – a form of Lord Ganpati. The one to the left is made of white marble while the other has been covered in vermillion.
To the north of the temple one can find the Gomukh – which literally translates to a ‘Cow’s Mouth’. Holy water gushes out of this point. Another attraction is the Nandadeep, which has been continuously burning ever since 1892 AD.
