Located nearly 80 km from Pune, Shri Mayureshwar or Moreshwar Mandir marks the starting point of the yatra and is considered the most important one among the eight revered temples of Ganesha. The trip is considered incomplete if the pilgrim fails to visit this significant temple. Surrounded by a boundary wall, with four minarets sprouting out of all four corners of the temple and symmetrical archways, the Moreshwar Mandir exudes strong influences of Mughal architecture. This can possibly be attributed to the fact a Muslim chieftain was a patron of the temple at the time of the construction.
