Greetings to everybody. Last week I visited above picnic spots near pune & in next week I planned to discover new water fall points near pune.
Birla Ganpati, a very large Mangal Murti Morya IDOL 72 foot is situated at Shirgaon about 26km from pune. Its route is very well known Pune- Nigdi- Dehu-Somatane. After crossing the Somatane toll plaza, take a first left & again take a left turn to reach Base parking of the Birla Ganapati. One the way there is a Ghoradeshwar. Near by places to visit are Prati Shirdi Shirgaon, Sant. Tukaram Karma bhumi Dehu. You can visit all these places in one day.
This Idol is made by Sarala Birla. Property is register by Jaishree Charity trust. Murtikar are Maturam & Naresh Varma. This Idol has 72 foot height & is places on 18x54x54 foot big Chourag. Is weight is more than 1000 ton.It requires 2 year to complete the work. Number 9 is a Shubh therefore all calculations are around 9 like height72=7+2=9, width=54=5+4=9, Chourang 18=1+8=9.
Ganpati Bappa Morya..........
