Ashtavinayaka

Ex Pune : (01 Night / 02 Days )
Ashtavinayaka means 'Eight Ganeshas' when translated in Sanskrit. Lord Ganesha, the Hindu God of unity, remover of obstacles, learning and prosperity. The Ashtavinayaka Yatra covers eight holy temples of Lord Ganesha which are located around Pune. Each temple has its own individuality and mythology. The deities in each temple are distinct from each other. Some of these deities are described as 'Swayambhu' figurines. This is to point the truth that no human created these deities; they were formed completely by nature.
