About Kurneshwar Ganpati

On the way from Satara to ‘Sajjangarh’, there is a tunnel. It is mentioned that this tunnel is built in 1855 under the guidance of Captain P. Hill. Once we cross this tunnel and turned at left side than at the small distance there is a self sole gorge temple of Ganapati. It is said, this temple is built in 1723 by Krishnaji Chamkar who was brother in law of ‘Bajirao Peshwa’. The campus of the temple is quiet and scenic. In this area, there is the temple of Shri ‘Dutta’ and ‘Shankar’. This is the shrine of Kurneshwar. On the first day of Diwali on the occasion of ‘Narak Chaturdashi’ after having the ‘Abhyangsnan’ (early morning holy bathing) firstly they go to pray this self-gorge Ganapati and it has been the practice of people of Satara. On this day by wearing new clothes people of Satara in the crowd look colourful on the way to gorge Ganapati.
