Girijatmaj Temple Lenyadri Wallpapers, Photos

Lenyadri is to the North of Pune, along the Kukdi river. The Ganesh Puran calls this place as Jirnapur or Lekhan Parbat. Girijatmaj Vinayak refers to the Ganesh as the son of Parvati. Girija is another name for Parvati and Atamaj means son. This is the only temple of the Ashtavinayak which is on a mountain and is set in a Buddhist cave-temple.
Ashtavinayaka or eight Ganeshas is located in Maharashtra state of India, The Ashtavinayaka yatra or pilgrimage tour covers the eight holy temples of Ganesha which are situated around Pune.
Goddess Parvati went through severe penance in the cave at the Lenyadri mountain to become the mother of Lord Ganesh. Pleased by her penance Gajanan blessed her and promised that he would take birth as her son. On the Chaturthi, fourth day of Bhadrapad Shuddh she created a idol from the dirt wiped from her body. In this idol entered Gajanan. He stood before as her a little boy, who had six arms and three eyes. This boy was called Ganesh, the one who has conquered all the senses. It is believed that Ganesh resided in Lenyadri for fifteen years.
