Ganapati Mandir in Titwala, Maharashtra, is a blissful experience anytime you visit.

Recently there has been lot of development work done by the Mandir Trust. Facilities developed like wide car parking area, toilets for ladies/gents and fully fenced lake.

If you want to have a calm look at the divine statue of Ganesha you can walk upstairs where there is window to the view of statue. Also you can do your "Pradakshina" complete here. While doing pradakshina you can have a top view of the lake behind.

Near the exit of the main temple there is trust's book shop, here you can find various mithological and spiritual books, photos of Ganesh, and many home made / ayurvedic edibles too. The collection is very nice, you must have a look once.

For travel now many options are available, but i will suggest you to enjoy a "Horse Buggy ride" to visit the divine temple of Titwala, Maharshatra.

Going and sitting in any temple gives peace of mind. We feel happy and satisfied. Tensions are reduced to some extent as we feel though due to psychological factor but credit goes to temples.
