Ashtavinayaka Tour

Though the conventional way is to start with Mayureswar of Moaregaon and proceed to Siddhatek and have darshan of Siddhivinayak and then move to bow before Ballaleshwar of Pali. Then go to see Varadvinayak of Mahad and then to Therur and have darshan of Chintamani. From there move to Lenyadri to see Girijatmaj and then have the darshan of Vighneswar of Ozar. Go to Ranjangaon and bow before Mahaganapati and then again come to Moregaon and complete the pilgimage. This pilgrimage route is not convenient for the devotees.
