Shree Navashya Ganapati

The scenic Navashya Ganapati temple is dedicated to Lord Ganapati/Vinayak. It is located at 6km from the CBS, on the way to Someshwar or Gangapur dam in Nashik. The temple is just next to the river Godavari and is a ‘Jagrut Devasthan’. It is fondly called as Navashya ganapati since the Ganapati here answers to the offerings in prayers (navas) of his devotees. The Navashya Ganapati temple is believed to be built around 300-400 years ago by the Peshwas. Raghoba Peshava and his wife Anandibai have built it in the year 1774. The Navashya Ganapati idol is saffron in color and its eyes are very lively. The temple also has replica idols of all the Ashtavinayaka.
