  • I have a photo of an old idol of Bappa. We have allowed idols to be made. But the sculptor wants a photo of the idol without a necklace. Can I get a photo like this? What needs to be done for that.

  • This place houses a beautiful garden and a very old temple of Lord Ganesha inside it. Entry is free and during the festivals there is lot of rush here. Once inside the temple complex the atmosphere...

  • Sarasbaug Ganesh temple is one of the oldest temples of Pune. It is one of the best places in the city if you are looking for some quite and peaceful outing. Ganesh temple is considered to be a very holy place and people widely come to offer their prayers. It is also surrounded by lush green stretch and a pond encircling the entire temple. The pond is full of different types of fishes and tortoises which excited the kids and adults to watch. The garden area is also well maintained with seating areas. One can also hear a lot of birds chirping here. People are often seen here hanging out with friends and families. It is a holy and serene place at the same time with lots of flora and fauna around.
  • Located in a very serene place whilst all the madness around this city. Very peaceful & vibrant temple. There is no rush or que for darshan at this place. One can spend some spiritual time here. Visiting the Sarasbaug park as well is quiet a bliss. You'll get a complete Peshwa vibe from the temple as it is kept as it was built.
  • Garden is really good..,there's an artificial lake in between that lake a Ganpati temple is built by Madhavrao Peshawa. It's really amazing..! But this place is toooo much crowded in the Evenings ( especially on sundays and on the day of Chaturthi) which I hate..it's really irritating when the place is overloaded with the peoplešŸ˜£
  • A good place to visit with friends and family, a couple can go but should not do romantic things there because it's a holy place. Also, there is a manmade lake and the crucial thing about that place is Ganpati Temple which was made by peshwas.
  • This is one of the best temple of lord ganpati, in the centre of the Pune city. The idol of ganesha was consecrated by nanasaheb peshwa in 1750 . This is the temple comples where lord Ganesha's shrine is surrounded by the 25 acres of the garden.overall good experience, must visit on holidays...
