The Swayambhu Ganapati Temple is believed to be 400 years old. According to legend, a farmer while walking through the Kerda jungles discovered the idol of Ganapati and later on he built a temple around the idol.
The Ganapati idol in the temple is built of pure white sand. The other idol of Lord Ganapati is made of copper and placed in the sanctum sanctorum. This idol is different from the previous one as it depicts the god riding on a lion.
This temple is located 20 km from the town of Ratnagiri and early in the morning nagaras can be heard as a part of religious ceremonies conducted here.
Timing: 5.00 am to 9.00 pm (Sundays Closed)
