Chintamani Temple In Ashtavinayak

The fifth temple of the Yatra, the Chintamani temple is located at Theur.

According to the legend behind this temple, Lord Ganesha managed to retrieve a “chintamani” or jewel for the sage Kapila. Sage Kapila decided to put the jewel around Lord Ganesha’s neck and so the temple is called Chintamani Vinayak or literally “the bejewelled Ganesh”. There is also a lake close to the temple, called Kadambteertha.

This temple was the family deity of Peshwa Madhav Rao I, fourth Peshwa, or ruler, of the Maratha Empire. He died very young and probably at this very temple.

The temple is located 22 km from Pune and on the confluence of the three rivers of Mula, Mutha and Bhima.
