MOREGAON - MORESHWAR

Moregaon - Moreshwar is the first temple on Ashtavinayak Yatra tour. The temple, built from black-stone during the bahamani reign, has four gates. The temple is situated in the centre of the village. The temple is covered from all sides by four towers and gives feeling of a mosque if seen from a distance. This may have been done to prevent attacks on the temple during mughal periods. The temple has 50feet tall wall around it.

The temple is situated at a distance of 55 km from Pune, next to the river Karha in the village of Moregaon . The village derives its name from the Marathi name of the bird Peacock - also the national bird of India.

The Murti of Lord Ganesha, riding on a peacock, in the form of Mayureshwara is believed to have hit the demon Sindhu at this spot. The idol, with its trunk turned to the left, has a cobra poised over it protecting it. This form of Ganesha also has two other murtis of Siddhi and Buddhi .

There is a Nandi sitting in front of this temple entrance, which is unique, as Nandi is normally in front of only shiva temples.

However, this is not the original murti -which is said to have been consecrated twice by Brahma, once before & once after being destroyed by the asura Sindhurasur. The original murti smaller in size and made of atoms of sand, iron, and diamonds, was supposedly enclosed in a copper sheet by the Pandavas and placed behind the one that is currently worshiped.
