The Siddivinayak Temple is believed to be primarily built by Lord Vishnu, though later it was rebuilt by the Peshwas. It is so said that while Lord Brahma was on his way to create the world, Lord Vishnu fell asleep. Two demons came out of his ears and started troubling everyone. Upon the request of all Gods, Lord Vishnu tried to kill them, but failed. He then stated worshipping Ganesha. With his blessings he could finally defeat the demons. Hence the place is called Siddhatek and Lord Ganesha is called Siddhivinayak.
There is a lot of significance of Siddhivinayak temple. It is said that it is very difficult to please this form of Ganesha. The trunk of this deity is turned in the right side and this is one of the most popular forms of Ganapati. This is a Swambhu (not made by man) form of Ganesha. The main idol is kept in a brass frame. It is about three feet tall and 2.5 feet wide. The idol also has his consorts Riddhi and Siddhi sitting on his laps and its stomach is not too wide as compared to the other Ganesha idols. The temple faces north.
