The available evidence attributes the construction to Ahalyabai Holkar and patronage by several Maratha princes; the second kshetra is Pali in the Kolaba district, and the presiding deity is called Ballal Vinayak. The temple said to have been built by Morobadada Phadnavis, brother of the celebrated Nana Phadnavis is very famous; the third one is at Mand, and the Vinayak goes by the name of Varad Vinayak; the fourth is at Ozar in the Junnar taluq, and the deity is called Vigneshwar; the fifth is in Lenyadri Hills and the deity is called Girijatmaka Vinayaka and is enshrined in a rock-cut shrine; the sixth is at Ranjangoan lying on the Poona - Ahmedabad road and the deity is called Ganapathi, the icon here is a substitute of the original one adorned with ten heads and twenty arms, supposed to have been enshrined in a cell below the garbhagriha; the seventh is at Theur near Loni lying on the Poona - Dhond Central Railway and the deity is called Chintamani Ganesh and it was patronized munificently by the Peshwa Madhava Rao I and the last one is at Morgaon and the deity is called the Mayureswar.

The Margaon Kshetra is considered very holy and embodies several unique features - its past is glittering; origin awe inspiring; miracles, innumerable and legends, too many.
