Most of the people visiting Mahabaleshwar hill station, route over Wai and obviously visit the MahaGanapati temple.
Unfortunately the MahaGanapati temple premises is not so clean 🙁 It can be clearly seen that no body is taking care of the garbage management there !! the Krishna river that u can see at the back of temple is also dirty .. this is unfortunate part that people after praying to Maha Ganpati do not care to keep the place clean … however if Devasthan takes care of the cleanliness using the earned money … Then devotees will also think twice before throwing plastic, garbage there !! but who cares ?
Flex depicting life of Sambhaji Maharaj, beautifully arranged inside the Kashi Vishweshwar temple, this temple is just 100 feet away from the Maha Ganesha temple & surprisingly this is maintained very clean from inside !!! must be the management is very strong and caring about the temple … why they are not maintaining the same outside also ? may be some issue !!! don;t know !
I have visited Wai many times on the way to Mahabaleshwar, but this was the first time I spent time only for Wai visit… to my disappointment the complete place is not so clean .. every where garbage is spilled around .. & I was very much disappointed by the way it was 🙁 so sad to see all ! but that’s the way people likes it, they do not even notice such things ! why not all these Ganesh Mandals who are spending huge amount of money on placing pedals & processions take care of a single temple in their area ???
