Shreemant Dagdusheth Halwai Sarvajanik Ganpati: This temple has a story to tell. Dagdusheth Halwai was a famous sweet trader. He lost his son in the outbreak of plague, post which he and his wife were very depressed. Then, Guruji Shri Madhavnath Maharaj consoled him and advised him to make two idols of God Shri Datta Maharaj and Shri Ganpati. He asked him to worship them and to take care of the idols like he would take care of his son. He said that in the future just like an offspring brings prosperity to a father´s name, these idols would do the same for him. Dagdusheth Halwai did as he was told and this very idol is placed in Aakara Maruti Temple, Shukrawar Peth. God Lovers and Photo Fanatics should certainly visit this place.
