MORGAON - MAYURESWAR TEMPLE  

The Morgaon kshetra is considered very holy among the Ashta Vinayaka kshetras and embodies several unique features - its past is glittering; origin awe-inspiring; miracles, innumerable; and legends too many. And hence its popularity far surpasses the rest of the kshetras. This shrine, besides enshrining the august archamurthi - Mayureswar, is housing eight images of Ganesh in the eight corners as mentioned in Mudgal Purana; it is one of the three favourite habitats of Lord Ganesh; it is this Ganesh who restored all the scriptures to the gods after killing Shankhasur, the formidable demon, who stole them; it is here the visitor sees four different kinds of gods installed at the entrances of four gates and special offerings to them with rituals go by the name of Dwarayatra that confers manifold blessings; it is this temple visited by great saints, like Tukaram, Swami Ramadas, Ganesh Yogendra etc., it is here Lord Ganesh killed Sindhu an asura and reinstated Devendra in former office; it is here Brahma offered his two daughters - Siddhi and Buddhi to him in marriage; it is here the Vikata avatara of Ganesh came to an end and he became Ganesh - it is this image, installed in Dwaparayuga by the Pandavas in the presence of Krishna; it is here Ganesh secured the services of Mayur, the son of Vinata and Kashyap and finally it is from this kshtera the Ganesh Sampradaya that came into being, gained ground and spread to the entire land through the saints like Moraya Gosavi etc.
