Mahaganapati (Ranjangaon), Ashtavinayak

The Mahaganpati Temple is one of the eight principal temples of Ashtavniayak and is based in the village of Ranjangaon. Once you enter the shrine in Ranjangaon, the idol of Mahaganpati can be seen in a seated position, flanked by Riddhi and Siddhi on either side. The original idol, however, is kept safely in the basement and supposedly has 10 trunks and 20 hands.

Legend has it that Ranjangaon is the very place where Lord Shiva obtained Lord Ganpati’s blessings which eventually helped him in killing the arrogant and vile Tripurasur.
