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.

श्रीगणपती स्तोत्र साष्टांग नमन हे माझे गौरीपुत्रा विनायका । भक्तीनें स्मरतो नित्य आयुःकामार्थ साधती ॥ १ ॥ प्रथम नांव वक्रतुंड दुसरें एकदंत ते । तिसरे कृष्णपिंगाक्ष चवथे गजवक्र ते ॥ २ ॥ पांचवे श्रीलंबोदर सहावें विकट नांव ते । सातवे विघ्नराजेंद्र आठवे धुम्रवर्ण ते ॥ ३ ॥ नववे श्री भालचंद्र दहावे श्री विनायक । अकरावे गणपती बारावे श्री गजानन ॥ ४ ॥ देवनांवे अशी बारा तीन संध्या म्हणे नर । विघ्नभीती नसे त्याला प्रभो ! तू सर्व सिद्धिदे ॥ ५ ॥ विद्यार्थ्याला मिळे विद्या धनार्थ्याला मिळे धन । पुत्रार्थ्याला मिळे पुत्र मोक्षार्थ्याला मिळे गति ॥ ६ ॥ जपता गणपती स्तोत्र सहा मासांत हे फळ । एक वर्ष पुर्ण होतां मिळे सिद्धी न संशय ॥ ७ ॥ नारदांनी रचिलेले झाले संपू्र्ण स्तोत्र हें । श्रीधराने मराठींत पठण्या अनुवादिले ॥ ८ ॥ ॥ श्रीगणपती स्तोत्र संपूर्ण ॥ या गणपतीच्या दर्शानासाठी दुरवरुन भक्तगण येतात. मनोकामाना पुर्ण करणाऱ्या गणपतींध्ये या गणपतीचे नाव अग्रकमाने घेतले जाते. भव्य दिव्य आरास हे गणपतीचे वैशिष्टय. १८९३ मध्ये श्रीमंत दगडू शेठ हलवाई यांनी ही मुर्ती बसवली. तमाम पुणेकरांबरोबरच देश विदेशातल्या गणेश भक्तांचे हा गणपती श्रध्दास्थान आहे. म्हणूनच वर्षभर भक्तांना दर्शन घेता यावे म्हणून बुधवार पेठेत गणपती भवन बांधण्यात आलं आहे.
It's a busy place at the best of times, it is located in a very bustling locality However, the atmosphere inside is calm, there isn't much noise, and one go about one's prayers with the minimum of fuss nor disturbance The construction of the temple too is very beautiful to look at and it stands out among the other buildings in the locality, for its intricate design It is located in a central spot so access is easy by local bus, three-wheeler and by cab... The queue management here is good and darshan is a smooth affair...
Words fall short to explain the marvellous beauty, effulgent devotees and spiritual divinity of temple. Cleanliness, variegated and modern amenities only adds further to enhance our experience. Here I experienced not just peace of mind but NECTAREAN BLISS!
Prime location...beautiful temple.. no need to even enter temple..idol is visible from outside. But Step inside and feel the beauty of temple. Worth to spend time in queue
