There is an ancient and beautiful Ganesh Temple in Asud, near Murud. While moving from Murud towards Harnai, you’ll come across Asud Naka. Once you take a right from that point, you will reach the temple. It is beautiful in its way as nobody built it. You read that right. The idol is self-proclaimed. Having four arms with the trunk facing right, it is approximately one and a half feet tall. Looking at the statue, it seems as Ganesh Ji is sitting in a Kamalasana posture. It looks like a sculpture from the Peshwa period. People visit here in huge numbers when the occasion of Sankashti Chaturthi arrives.
