This village in Khalapur taluka is known for the Varadvinayak Temple, one of the ashtavinayak (nine Ganeshas) temples. The restoration of the temple was done by Peshwa’s general Ramji Mahadev Biwalkar in 1725 AD. There is a beautiful pond on the side of the temple. Interestingly, it is said that the idol of Varada Vinayak is swayambu (self-originated), and was found in a nearby lake. The idol of Lord Ganesha faces the east, while his trunk is turned towards the left. You will find four idols of elephants that are guarding the four corners of the temple. Festivals such as Magh Chaturthi see large crowds coming to visit the temple. Another attraction here is the oil lamp which, it is said, has been burning continuously since 1892!
