Must Visit

As per the local belief, devotees should visit Maha Ganapati Temple before going to Mahabaleshwar Temple. This temple is well known among travellers for its 1.3 metre tall black stone idol of Lord Ganesha. Pilgrims first offer prayers at the Maha Ganesha Temple because it is said that Lord Shiva blessed him with the honour of first worship.
