Ganapatipanchayatan Of Tasgaon :
The Ganapati Penta-Pantheon. Panchayatan means a group of five deities. Adi Shankaracharya introduced the idea of having five deities for worship. At Tasgaon (which is a famous grapes-producing centre), in Sangli district there is such grouping of five deities. This temple or rather a temple-complex, was built by Parashurambhau Patwardhan, an esteemed general of Peshwas in 1785. Patwardhans later founded small princely states in Sangli district.
The penta-pantheon is formed as follows: at the centre there is idol of Siddhi- Vinayak. On right, it is flanked by Rameshwar temple, on left there is temple of Vishnu. Remaining two are those of Suryanarayana(the sun god) and Uma. They are situated along the peripheral perambulation track. This is a peculiarity.
Sun Temple :
The Sun god is of prime importance in Vedic religion, but there are very few temples of his. All the temples and the idols face the East. The complex is made up of carved rock slabs, ornated with motifs. At the entrance there is "Nagarkhana", a place where musical instruments would be kept. It looks like a roofed balcony. This structure us a common feature of medieval Maharashtrian architecture. After passing through the archway, you stop onto the courtyard. Then comes the temple, with its south-indian style, high, multi-storeyed pinnacle.
The "Sabhamandap" is three-chambered. Ten feet high rampart encloses the temple. Between the rampart and the temple there is garden. Ganapati is seated on golden throne. It is made up of white quartz. Lord's trunk is twisted right-wards.
Ganpati Of Sangli:
This Ganesha was installed in 1843, by Patwardhans. Here too there is a conclave of celestial beings. Shankar, Suryanarayana, Chintamaneshwari, Laxmi Narayan and Ganesha.
It is a grand temple, built in black stone. Like traditional layout of Indian temples, there is sanctum-sanctorum, middle chamber, outer chamber (Sabha-griha) and "Nagarkhana". The temple is situated along the banks of river Krishna.
Khandoba Of Deshing :
The village of Deshing is in Taluka of Kavathe-Mahankal, district Sangli. It is 25 kilometers away from the town of Miraj, a railway junction. It is said that the temple here goes back 300 years. A legend has it that one Kulkarni, an ancestor of present manager of the temple, had the Hod appeared in his dream, telling him that he would surface in Deshing. Then this ancestor built the temple along the river bank.
