- Monolithic Ganesh Idol Perched on a Hill near Mumbai.
You may have been to Mumbai. But have you ever been to Matheran, a lush green hill station tucked between Mumbai and Pune?
- Situated at a vintage point looking over the scenic landscape, Kadyavarcha Ganapati is a popular attraction of Matheran.
- ‘Kada’ is a Marathi word meaning edge; hence, the idol is named after its location on the edge of a vintage point amid the hills where nature and heaven embrace each other. A short trek gives access to Kadyavarcha Ganapati.
Carved out of a single boulder, Kadyavarcha Ganpati is also known as Nisargacha Raja.
Matheran, an eco-sensitive region, is the only automobile-free region in Asia. A favorite haunt of trekkers, Matheran has 38 designated viewpoints where catching a 360-degree panoramic view of the landscape is a lifetime experience.
