Saverkar Ganapati Mandir is a popular temple of Lord Ganesha
situated at Ganesha Bhavan in Vadodara
. The much venerated shrine is exclusively devoted to the elephant-faced Hindu deity. Ganapati Buwa Maharaj (Vasudev Sadashiv Mhaskar) performed a strict penance and pleased the Lord. He was granted an idol from the deity. Later he went to a pilgrimage to Saver in Madhya Pradesh
. He realized that the region was well connected with Ujjain
, Kashi and Rameshwar. Thus he sanctified the idol and installed it there and constructed a Ganesha temple.
The Saverkar Ganapati Mandir in Vadodara is the offshoot of the Saver temple. Several festivals are celebrated in the temple, such as Ganesh Chaturthi
, Bhadrapad, Vaisakhi Poornima and others. The shrine is well connected with the Vadodara Airport and the Vadodara Junction Railway Station.
