OJHAR - VIGNESWARA MANDIR

THE TEMPLE

The temple built in the North Indian style is a singles celled one with garbha griha and a big mandap in its fore. And they are spacious and modestly beautified with ace sculptural pieces. The image of Vigneswar is facing east and the trunk turned leftwards. Costly bright diamonds are embedded in the eyes, navel and forehead. It is quite attractive and raises the hands of the visitors in veneration at first sight itself. He is flanked by the idols of Siddhi and Buddhi, his consorts. Elaborate prayer services are offered with rituals. In addition to regular Ganesh Chaturthi festival, here is celebrated another festival on a grand scale during Karthika masa lasting for five days. Being a star attraction, it lures lakes of bhaktas, who participate lustily in all activities. It is a muss-not periodical gala performance of the year and attended by unmanageable crowds.

It lies in Ojhar in the Junnar taluq of Maharashtra, accessible by bus from neighbouring towns.
