Legend has it that a demon, Sindhu, who by the blessing of Sun God, achieved immortality with the help of the nectar in his stomach. With his new found power he attacked the Gods and unleashed destruction. Responding to the pleas of the Gods, Ganesha ,on a peacock, came down to earth and defeated the demon by cutting open his body to empty the nectar. Ganesha, as he rode a peacock in the war, earned the name Mayureshwar or Moreshwar.
This Temple is part of famous Ashtavinayak Yatra
The Muslim influence on the temple architecture can be detected in the four minarets at the four corners of the boundary wall, giving it an image of a mosque from afar. The main temple is made of black stones. A huge stone pillar for oil lamps and the structure of a mooshika(mouse) are present in the front of the shrine while Nandi stands outside the premise facing the Lord. The main entrance of the temple faces north and there are sculptures of the eight avatars of Ganesha in different parts of the shrine. The Vinayaka image in the sanctum is depicted in a seated posture with its trunk turning to the left, four arms and three eyes. He is flanked by Riddhi and Siddhi. On the pradhikshana path and in the courtyard are sacred trees where many saints underwent penance.
