Main temple looks like temple from peshwa's period.Temple is so constructed that sun rays fall directly on Shree Ganesha's idol.The stone pillars of old temple will be seen in the compound which indicates that architecture of original temple shows similarity to 9th or 10th century architecture.
Idol faces east and is in a crossed legged sitting position with broad forehead and the trunk turned towards the left. Riddhi and Siddhi are on both the sides of Mahaganpati.It is said that the original idol of mahaganpati is hidden in a cellar in the basement.It is also said that it has10 trunks and 20 hands.Meditating on that idol is called Mahaganapati Dhyan.That idol is not taken out usually.That ganesha is called Mahotkata.However temple trustee's have refused the existence of such an idol in the cellar.
