Its a beautiful temple with a huge ganesha idol. and beautiful artwork on the ceiling too. Long lines draw up to enter this place but once you enter it really is beautiful, no denying that.
While we were mesmerised by the beauty of the Lord, my husbands running shoes got picked up from outside. We didnt know there were racks available so we had just left them on the side like many others. but unfortunately.. in less than five minutes the shoes were gone. so watch your shoes or pay a buck and leave it with a shopkeeper.

ISKCON temple at Camp in Pune is a pretty old temple but very very peaceful place. The idol of Shri Radha Krishna is beautiful and gives one inner peace of mind. There is a small garden in the premise near the temple. They also have a shop selling Krishna gift articles and stuff. There is a food court serving delicious prasadam. One can also buy books about Krishna and ancient Hindu Vedas in different languages at the temple. One should try and sit here for some time in peace and be one with the lord !!!

This is one of the best places in India to visit, especially, in monsoon season because all Mountains are lush green everywhere. It rains heavily here in monsoon season. There are several spots all over the western ghats, which are worth visiting. One can go with friends & families. It is preferred to have your own vehicle or rented vehicle so that one can have stopover at any scenic spot along the way.

A beautiful natural place, this must be preserved for eternity.
I have been coming here for over 12 years and seen Howe slowly this place is getting destroyed. The entire drive through Kalyan is ruined by many many speed breakers. There is building construction all along the road making you feel like you haven’t left your city. Only the last few km are good but that too is changing. Every year I come here, I see more trees cut down, more hills burnt, more hotels coming up.

The temple is a peaceful haven in the city bustle. Very traditional and typically south. Warms my tamilian heart in Pune!
I specially love the night pooja with the "naadasvaram" that is played to put the Lord to sleep. Happens at 8:45 to 9 pm. Peaceful time to visit and soothing music :)

We had been to this Maha Ganapati Temple at Ranjangaon on our trip to Ashtavinayak.. This is one of the Ashtavinayak temples of Maharashtra.. The Temple complex is very much big. The temple and the surroundings are kept very clean. We went to this temple on a week day at about 4 pm. There was not much rush and we had a very nice darshan of the Lord.Ganesha. The idol is just like Siddhivinayak of Mumbai. It is said that Lord Shiva worshiped Lord Ganapati here before fighting the demon Tripurasura.
Good Car Parking facility is available here in the temple complex.
