Dholya Ganapati

Dholya-Ganapti

Shree Dholya Ganpati Mandir is located near the Ashok Stambh in the central Nashik.

This Peshwa time Ganapati is located near the Ashok Stambh in the central Nashik. Conventionally, temples of Maruti, Ganapati, Bhairavnath were set up beyond the limits of a city or village. According to this convention, the Nashik’s inhabitation ended near this temple. The deity is lovingly called Dholya because of its impressive hugeness – aptly called Lambodar, Vishalkay etc. The temple is frequented by college students and is very crowded during the day. Gaikwad family looks after the idol and the temple.
