Legend of Modakeshwar Temple
According to legend, modak used to be found in this temple. Temple owner Vilas Kshemkalyani's ancestor Keshavrao Kshemkalyani dreamt of a Ganapati in this particular place of the now erected Modakeshwar temple. When he came to the site, he really did find a 'swayambhu' Ganapati. Since then his family has been looking after the idol. The Nasikites have immense faith in the idol's divinity, as it is known to answer their prayers.
Festival of Modakeshwar Temple
Ganesh festival is a gala festival here on all ten days in Bhadrapada. The Modakeshwar temple has rendered holiness to this area which otherwise looks quite ghastly in lieu of the cemetery and a long stretch of ground along the riverbank. But, in the present times the locality is bustling with activities.
