Mahad Varad Vinayak Ashtavinayak Temple (Nivalink Trip Dated - 18 October 2007)

One of the eight Ashtavinayak Temples at 6 km from Khopoli. This is well visited over weekends. From the parking area there is a 200-300 meters walk to the temple.

Ashtavinayak DarshanBy Arts_164u on 21th Jan 2021

Part of my Ashtavinayak Darshan visited the temple after visiting Pali. No crowd due to covid issue. Parking available on chargeable basis. Nice place. Enjoyed with my two year old kid

a holy placeBy Raj_Josh on 08th Mar 2020

Its a great and divine place but in very congested area. difficult to find the parking. locals charge Rs.40 per vehicle.

Small but peacefulBy sunitatrips on 09th Jul 2019

The sanctity and peacefulness inside the temple really purified me from the inside and I spent nearly two hours meditating under the shade of a mango tree beside the temple.
