Ashtavinayak Yatra

////Ashtavinayak Yatra



Ashtavinayaka means “Eight Ganeshas” when translated in Sanskrit. Lord Ganesha is the Hindu God of unity, remover of obstacles, learning and prosperity. The Ashtavinayaka Yatra is the most important worship yatra in Maharashtra.

This pilgrimage or yatra covers the eight holy temples of Lord Ganesha which are located around Pune . Each temple has its own individuality and mythology. The deities in each temple are distinct from each other. Some of these deities are described as ‘Swayambhu’ figurines. This is to point to that no human created these deities; they were formed completely by nature.

According to Hindu Shastra, you will have to visit the Moreshwar temple at Morgaon first and then in sequence visit the temples at Siddhatek, Pali, Mahad, Thevur, Lenyandri, Ozar, Ranjangaon and in last visit the Moreshwar temple again. This will complete your Ashtavinayak Yatra.
