Ganapatipule, a capturing village in Maharashtra, is important to the Indian nationalists as it is the birthplace of the leader Lokmanya Tilak. It is a sleepy village in the Ratnagiri district of southwest Maharashtra in India. Since the village is not touched by commercialism, the Arcadian beauty of the village is raised many times. There is a 6 kilometer virgin beach on the fantastic Konkan coastline.

It is the belief of the locals that the village of Ganapatipule is blessed. In the days when men were devotees and miracles took place, the four Dwardatas were welcomed to the sub-continent and Ganapatipule is believed to be the western deity.

According to legend, once a villager was running away from the clashes and when he made his way through the jungles he stumbled on Lord Ganapati’s idol. He built a temple around the idol. From the past 400 years, people have been caring and making additions to the shrines and the temple is how it looks today.

The village of Ganapatipule is famous for its 400-year-old Ganesha temple. The idol is curved from one massive rock. The idol is a Swayambhu Ganpati shrine which means that it is a self-created monolith of Lord Ganesha.

The village has a beautiful beach where the river meets the Arabian Sea and the hill that is shaped like Ganpati enchants the visitors. The climate of the village is moist and humid.
