The place is small in the heart of Pune city. But the richness of the place is seen everywhere in the recently renovated place.
Most interesting was the Bhasmarati offered on Chaturthi. The way the bhajans are sung is a treat to watch for those who come to have a Darshan of Lord who is Parabrahma or the highest level god. Note even if Ganapati is son of Shankar he is not second to him!!! During the period from Ganesha Chaturthi to ananda chaturdashi, which happens in August / Sept.the idol is shifted to original place near Datta Mandir and decoration representing famous temples of India takes place. Big rush of people takes place from all over Pune.

This is old Ganpati Temple and must visit place during your Pune visit. It becomes phenomenal during the Ganesh Festival (celebrated for 10 days in August/September depending on the Moon cycle).

For those of faith, this is a must-visit temple in Pune. Almost invariably crowded, this place has quite a charm of its own. The idol is extremely beautiful, and richly decorated.

Since it is located in a crowded inner area of the city, there is always a vehicle parking problem on hand, unless the visit is early in the morning or late after the working hours. The crowd is always large, but you don't have to wait too long in a queue for the darshan unless you are visiting on special days like Chaturthis. And during the Ganesh festival, the crowd is unbelievably large and the security is perked up too.

It is a temple that I visit every once in a while, and always leave the premises calmer.
