As he is the household deity of the illustrious rulers like Shivaji, family god of industrial houses and choicest daivam of nationalists like Tilak etc., several shrines of huge dimensions with sculptural marvels were built all over the state and they became the centres of Ganesh Sampradaya encouraging Ganosopasana and propagating its tenets and glory. Some of the shrines have become so popular that a visit to them is deemed a necessity, and the bliss they confer is equally infinite and thrilling. Among the places of great importance as pilgrimage centres preferring sure solace to the theists, eight places deserve mention for visitation. And each enshrines one aspect of the Lord and so has a characteristic speciality of its own with regard to background, glory, emergence, patronage, prayers, devotees etc.

The common tradition enjoins visiting of all the eight kshetras one after the other to receiving the full merit of pilgrimage, and they are separated by short distances from one another, and are located in a radius of some 50 km around Poona. The first kshetra is called Siddhatek and its presiding deity is Siddivinayaka. It lies on the river Bhima on Dhond - Sholapur section of Central Railway.
