The temple is situated in amidst of main city/market. Yet the experience is so divine and peaceful. Many films have been shot here, in the evening sit at Varnada and immerse in aarti. Ganpati Bappa Morya !

Very nice temple and serene atmosphere. The huge Ganesha idol is overwhelming and looks beautiful. Loved the peace and silence around the temple as well as the Shiv temple.

This is a nice temple dedicated to Lord Ganesh. Name Dholya means fatty and since this idol is large in size, this name is given to this lord Ganesh. Located on the banks of Krishna river this temple is worth a visit.

The Dholya Ganpati temple is located in Wai village close to the banks of River Krishna. The Lord Ganesha idol is quiet massive and gives a distinctive character to the temple. We had a very nice darshan as the temple was not crowded.
