Hedvi Ganesh Temple Overview

This exceptional Lakshmi-Ganesh temple is one of the unique places to visit in Ganpatipule because the principal deity is extremely uncommon. The 3-feet tall idol has ten arms and hence is named as ‘Dashbhuja Ganpati’, where ‘Das’ means ten and ‘Bhuj’ means hand. This symbolic representation of warrior Lord Ganesha is extremely rare.

According to local legends, the idol was constructed during the Peshwa dynasty with white marble brought from Kashmir. From Shukla Chaturthi to Shashthi during the month of Magh in the Hindu calendar, there is an outstanding celebration of the birth of Lord Ganesha, with a glorious procession.

About 3 km from the temple rests the incredible black sand bay in between the white sand beaches of Ganpatipule and Guahagar. This small stretch of shoreline is rocky and not fit for swimming.

Location: 31.5km from Ganpatipule, Hedvi Village, Velneshwar, Maharashtra.

Timing: Daily 6:00am - 12noon, 1:30pm - 7:00pm.
