This temple is located in Mahad in Raigad District of Maharashtra. It is a part of the famous Ashtavinayaka Circuit. According to Mythology, Prince Rukmangad died due to a curse of Mukunda. After Mukunda and Lord Indra came to know about this, they curse him. In turn Mukunda curse his son Grutsamand to bear an evil son and this son was the demon Tripurasura. Grutsamand worshipped Lord Ganesha and the same Ganesha is placed in Varada here. The temple faces the east and devotees are allowed here to worship alone one at a time too.
