This is the only murti of these eight with the trunk positioned to the right.
The Mayureshwar or Moreshwar temple is along the Karha river in the Morgaon village . A temple that looks like a tiny fort from a distance, it is situated in the Baramati Taluka of Pune district in Maharashtra. The idol of Mayureshwar is in the garbhagriha,the sanctum in which only the head priest is permitted entry. The deity is three eyed, seated, and his trunk is turned towards the left. The eyes and the navel of the deity are studded with precious diamonds. On the head are seen the fangs of Nagaraj. The deity is flanked by brass idols of Siddhi and Buddhi who are considered the consorts of Ganesh. In front of the deity stand a mouse and a peacock.The original idol is actually much smaller than it seems but continuous anointing of the idol with sindoor has resulted in the idol seeming much larger than it actually is. It is believed that this layer of sindoor peels off on its own every 100 or 150 years, revealing the actual idol.
