Wai

In the midst of nature

A popular temple town with a lot of mythical significance, Wai is a great getaway spot in Mumbai. Soak in the scenic beauty of the sheer greenery all around or just stop here for a few hours before you head to other weekend getaways of Maharashtra like Panchgani and Mahabaleshwar. Wai is also home to more than 100 temples thus earning the title - ‘Dakshin Kashi’ of the state. If you are still having second thoughts about visiting this place, take Bollywood's word for it as many blockbuster movies like Dabangg, Mangal Pandey and Swades have been shot here.  

Situated 35 kilometres, north of Satara, Wai has nearly 100 temples that make it a great destination for history buff, architects and devotees. Most of the temple in this region follow the Hemadpanthi style of architecture, which is a technique that uses huge stone slabs without mortar. Further, these types of temple make use of stucco, lime-made sculptures and paintings. The most famous temple in Wai is the Dholya Ganapati Temple, also known as the Maha Ganapati Temple, which is present on the river Krishna on Ganapati Aali Ghat. Built by Ganpatrao Bhikaji Raste in 1762, it is extremely popular for design and impressive grandeur.

Wai is also called Viraatnagari as it is believed that the Pandavas resided with King Viraat of Wai when they were on exile. In addition, it was also an important centre for business and commerce with traders heading towards the port of Konkan and cities of Satara and Narasimha. There are two temples at Dhomeshwar and  Narasimha, which witness a lot of crowds during religious occasions.
