Dagdusheth Ganpati - Review
The Dagdusheth Halwai Ganapati sits in the heart of Pune amidst the heavy traffic and bustling peths. When you enter the temple, loud chants of ‘Ganapati Bappa Morya’ engulf you and your eyes fall on the beautiful Dagdusheth idol in the main Mandap. You can’t help but marvel how beautiful the gold laden Maharashtrian deity is.
The temple was built by Dagdusheth Gadve in memory of his late son. Gadve, a Halwai (Sweet maker) was a devotee of Lord Ganesha and built this temple in his ancestral building in Budhwar Peth.
He also formed the ‘The Shreemant Dagdusheth Halwai Sarvajanik Ganpati Trust’. It is one of the richest religious trusts in the country. Along with the temple administration, the trust does a lot of philanthropic work. It runs an orphanage, an old age home and ambulance services for poor.
The temple is also notable for popularizing the Ganeshostav. DagduSheth Halwai temple does a lot of constructive work unlike many Ganesh Mandals, who play loud music and ignore the vision that Lokmany Tilak had for the Ganesh Festival.
A grand procession is carried out on the Anand Chaturdashi with the Lord placed in a decorated chariot. Traditional Dhol and Tashe fill the atmosphere with a devotional enthusiasm.
A visit to Pune is incomplete without visiting the Dagdusheth Mandir. It is the pride of Pune. Many Punekars start their day by bowing down to their beloved god. The temple welcomes people of all faith and soothes every chaotic soul that comes in search of some peace.
During the Ganesh festival that is held for ten days, it lightens up with artistic creations which start three months prior to the festival. It is swarmed with visitors in during this time and is the best time to visit the temple in its full glory. The Dagdusheth Halwai Ganapati is the one of best popular things to do in Pune.

श्रीमंत दगदुशेथ हलवाई गणपति - भक्तों के लिए सबसे प्यारा देवता। श्रीमंत दगदुशथ हलवाई गणपति पुणे शहर के लिए गर्व और सम्मान का प्रतीक है। भारत और दुनिया के हर हिस्से से भक्त हर साल भगवान गणपति से प्रार्थना करते हैं। श्रीमंत दगदुशेत हलवाई मंदिर आज भारत में पूजा के सबसे सम्मानित स्थानों में से एक नहीं बल्कि श्रीमंत दगदुसेथ हलवाई सर्व गणनिक गणपति ट्रस्ट के माध्यम से सक्रिय रूप से सामाजिक कल्याण और सांस्कृतिक विकास में शामिल एक सामाजिक संस्था है। मंदिर एक लंबा और गौरवशाली इतिहास बोलता है। Shreemant Dagdusheth Halwai Ganapati – the most endearing deity to devotees. Shreemant Dagdusheth Halwai Ganapati is the epitome of pride and honour to the city of Pune. Devotees from every part of India and the world come to pray to Lord Ganapati here every year. Shreemant Dagdusheth Halwai Mandir is today, not only one of the most highly revered places of worship in India but a social institution actively engaged in social welfare and cultural development through Shreemant Dagduseth Halwai Sarvajanik Ganapati Trust.The temple speaks of a long and glorious history. The deity of Lord Ganesha was incepted by Shri Dagdusheth Halwai and his wife Lakshmibai way back, when they lost their only son to the plague epidemic. Every year the Ganapati festival was celebrated with deep faith and enthusiasm not only by Dagdusheth’s family but the entire neighbourhood.
Feels so nice to be here. A blessed ambience always surrounded by positive vibes and the blessings of Bappa. ☺️ Such a lovely and great temple.

A very beautiful place. Great place to find peace of mind. The aura of the place is amazing it feels like home here. The decoration on various occasions is eye catching it feels like there is always a festive vibe at this place Use the local transport or at the most you can take a two Wheeler.Moreover the Ganpati looks just amazing. I love this place and I could never say no to going there. Do not travel by your own vehicle as no parking is available there.Though there are insanely long queues during festivals but the management of crowd is so well that it would never take you more than an hour to reach the temple even if you are at the end of the queue. My suggestion is this place should be in your must visit list if you are coming to Pune.
खरतर बाप्पा म्हणलं कि विषय संपला.. बाकीच्या देवांसारखे ते मोठे किव्हा काही तथ्य असनारे नाहीत.. I would say that most of children’s is waiting for “Bappa” every year and Dagdusheth is my one of best place to take Darshan directly from road,, also it’s situated in market street so you can shop roadside... and in big showroom also!
