SHREE VARADVINAYAKA’S TEMPLE & IDOL

Shree Dhondu Paudkar in 1690 A.D. found the swayambhu idol of Shree Varadvinayak in a lake. This idol was kept in a nearly goddess temple for some time. Afterwards in 1725 A.D. Varadvinayaka’s temple was built by peshava sardar Ramji Mahadev Biwalkar & he gifted this to the village.

Temple has been recently renovated by the trustees. The old temple used to look like a house with a tiled roof. There is a Gomukh towards north. Holy water (tirth) comes out of this Gomukh. Lake is at the west. Temple is 8 feet long & 8 feet broad. Dome is 25 feet high with golden pinnacle.

The original idol of the Varadvinayak can be seen outside the sanctum. Since the idol was in badly weathered condition, temple trustees immersed that idol & consecrated new idol in that place. However, such a decision of trustees was abjected by few people & suits was filed in district court. Result of the case is awaited. Till that two idols, one inside the sanctum & one outside the sanctum will be seen.

Two stones idol of Riddhi & Siddhi will be seen in the sanctum. Two Ganesh idol are situated in the two corners. Idol in the left corner is smeared in vermillion & idol in the right corner is made up of white marble with trunk turned to right. The sanctum made up of stone & surrounded by beautiful carved stone elephant carvings, houses the idol. The idol is in sitting position, with the trunk turned left. the idol faces east.
