About Siddhivinayak Temple
The famous Siddhivinayak temple of India was built on 19 November 1801 by a local contractor named Lakshman Vithu Patil. This temple is dedicated to Lord Ganesha, although very few people know that the amount involved in the construction of this temple was given by a farmer woman who had no children. The gates of this temple are open to the people of every religion caste.
Architecture of Siddhivinayak Temple
The Siddhivinayak Temple is exquisitely designed. The idol of Lord Ganesha located here is carved out of a single black stone, which is about 2 feet tall and the temple complex is spread over an area of 2550 square meters.
The original structure of the Siddhivinayak temple was earlier quite small, measuring 3.6 m x 3.6 m in size. The 'Gabhara' is an octagonal shelter, about ten feet wide, surrounded by an idol of Lord Ganesha. The ceiling inside the Gabhara is plated with gold and adds to the beauty of the idol.
