Possibly one of the greatest manifestations of human faith, Ganpatipule is bounded by the green hills and blue sea. This is one of the most visited pilgrim destinations in India. And why not! It is home to the over 400-year old Swayambhu idol of Ganesha, believed to have been formed on its own. The town is small, but it does not in any way lessen its importance. A glimpse of this can be had during the Ganpati Festival, when thousands of devotees reach here to reaffirm their faith in The Protector. The sunrise and sunset are particularly ethereal, as they spill into the blue waters, thus turning it into hues of orange and red. The temple is bound by a courtyard, where devotees sit meditating. The sun rays bestow their light on the lord and it is then that you can understand why he is the lord of pule (sands).
