Temple History

Mangal Murti Shree Gajanan means a vigilant and prosperous deity. Many have perceived this experience. Thousands of devotees visit the temple for “Darshan” and are blessed by our Shree Udyan Ganesh.

Initially, Shree Ganesh at this temple was underneath a banyan tree. Soon, this beautiful and radiant murti occupied the hearts of many devotees, specially because of its location with the sea as it’s backdrop. On the Magh Shuddha Chaturthi, Shake 1891 (Dated 09.02.1970) this Shree Ganesh came to be known as “SHREE UDYAN GANESH” which is the most apt name for it.

This beautiful temple with a small sanctum-sanctorum was built under the same banyan tree. During the construction of the temple, many hurdles were encountered, but after all the hardships and difficulties the temple of “Vighna Harta” materialized successfully. Today, this beautiful and holy temple is located under the same banyan tree. The surroundings of the temple including the adjoining area have been beautified and well maintained. The count of the devotees is ever increasing and the faith in this temple is growing multi fold. A Board of Trustees has been constituted to maintain the temple and to look after and execute various temple related activities. Sub-Committees have been set up to organize religious, cultural, social, educational, health and sports activities.

The trustees and the members of the said sub-committees along with the activists, work selflessly and with devotion. The offerings and donations to the deity form the wealth of the society, namely, “Shree Udyan Ganesh Mandir Seva Samiti”. The said wealth is utilized for the activities as well as the programmes on behalf of the said Samiti. The Seva Samiti gives donation to many charitable organizations and also sponsors blood donation camps, diabetic checkups, eye care camps and cancer detection. In the temple, regular “Abhishek” and other religious rites are performed. As the occation demands, “Kirtans”, “Bhajans”, “Pravachan” are organized. Each year, “Shree Udyan Ganesh Janmotsav” is celebrated on a grand scale. Out of social concern, the Seva Samiti has also constructed a “Police Chowki” adjacently. Facility of cold drinking water has been made available for the public.

With the blessings of Shree Udyan Ganesh, all the activities and programs undertaken were successfully managed. We pray humbly to the Lord, that with all our might, dedication and support from the devotees, we continue this service in future as well.
