Ballaleshwar temple is one of the eight “Ashtavinayak” temples of Lord Ganesha. It is located in the village of Pali which is at a distance of about 60 km from Karjat in the Raigad district. It is situated in the vicinity of fort Sarasgad and the river Amba.

Must take the darshana of the Dhundi Vinayak before visiting the Ballaleshwar Temple. It’s a tradition.

It is said that the temple was built by Moreshvar Vitthal Sindkar (Dighe) in 1640AD. There is a bell in the temple that was brought back by Chimaji Appa after he defeated the Portuguese in Vasai and Sasti. The original wooden temple was renovated in 1760 to make way for a new stone temple designed by Shri Fadnis.

If you are fan of Ganeshji and has inclination towards spirituality, I would suggest do visit this temple atleast once. Road from mumbai to destination is not so great but temple is great with beautiful wooden work.

Ballaleshwar Ganpati Temple is learned to be one of the sacred places to visit, as its a part of the Ashtavinayak Ganpati Mandir.
Ashta basically means 8 in sanskrit, all of these 8 temple's fall in the state of maharashtra. They are believed to be the most sacred places, people from various states and culture tend to visit atleast once in a lifetime.

Ancient architecture of the temple looks beautiful, built up in black Rock, it was found cool, than the temperature outside.
Towards the entrance of the temple, there are many stalls selling flower offerings to the lord, some even sell small ganesh idols, some sell sweets and papad which are local.

Once you enter the temple the chants of Ganpati Bappa Morya are heard from every corner, feels so calm n content standing in front of the Ganesh idol. As our visit was in the evening, so we dint find much rush. Otherwise it takes some time for darshan.

> Roads are not very good, also because we went post monsoon.
> Car parking is available at a distance of the temple.
> No photography inside the temple.

This temple is situated in Raigad District, is again a small temple, as most of the temples of the ashtavinayak circuit basically are. One can have a comfortable darshan of Lord here and the crowd management is also very good. Crowd keeps coming and keeps moving continously. There is a small pond just in front of the Temple

We visited this temple in the morning. We had a peaceful darshan as there was no rush. However the roads to that place are not good.

Through the journey to Pali's Balleleshwar mandir, I felt bappa's presence. Although, the roads are horrible from Alibaug to Pali, yet Bappa made the journey good.

There are pretty shops lined up as you enter the temple premises. You get homemade organic products their at affordable rates. The temple is Peshwa style from inside, frozen in time and Bappa was there smiling at me. Best time to visit would be this time, winter season.

It was a nice experience. I enjoyed travelling with family. You can go there in an open vehicle from Alibaug. The temple is beautiful and Bappa's presence can be felt.
