LENYADRI - GIRIJATMAJA MANDIR

THE TEMPLE

It is a Cave temple: accessible by a flight of steps numbering 283 and the entire sannidhi is carved out of a big rock. It is a single-celled mandir with garbha griha enshrining the image of a well-chiselled Ganesh and a beautiful Sabha mantap in front, adorned with enchanting sculptural pieces. The unique feature that greets the eye is - the archamurti is facing north though the entrance is on the south. Hence no Mukha puja. Several such oddities do draw reverent attention, and elevate the souls. In the garbha griha, there lie the images of Hanuman and Maheswar. They are receiving daily worship too, along with the Moola Vigrahas. Regular agamic worship is offered with great veneration and periodical festivals are celebrated with unprecedented pomp and splendour.

It lies 5 km off Junnar of Maharastra, accessible by four wheelers.
