        "Sant Gajanan Maharaj Temple" is located at Shegaon Tahasil in Buldhana District  in  Maharashtra State, India.

        Sant Gajanan maharaj identified by several names like Gin Gine Buwa, Ganpat Buwa, and Awaliya Baba. A Banyan tree in old Shegaon. Two youngsters noticed a peculiar personality strongly built. Fair in complexion. Young in age. Peculiar calmness and satisfaction on face. Searching rice particles on the patrawalies. And chanting Gan Gan Ganat Bote. No effect on face of scorching heat of summer noon time. That was the first appearance of Gajanan Maharaj in tiny Shegaon Town. The personality was so impressive that the tow youngsters, Bankatlal and Damodar were attracted to the charm, And then began the legendary life; his legendary charisma!

        It is said that he was the Awatara of Samarth Ramdasa of Sajjangarh. Devotees used to offer him rich food, clothes, ornaments etc. But he used throw away all there. He used to lie anywhere, eat anything, wear any piece of cloth or nothing at all.

Sant Gajanan maharaj used to keep away from the worldly things. But though he tried to the people that he is in same, he has no literary knowledge, and so on. it is amply proved that - he was Bedshastree Sampnna, Gajanan maharaj was perfect in Yogashastra and that he had done Tapascharya, and he even knew the language of animals and birds. That's why Mahan Yogies, learned people and famous personalities used to come to see him. 

Legends say that in his lifetime, he performed many miracles such as giving a fresh lease on life to one Janrao Deshmukh, lighting the clay-pipe without fire, filling a dry well with water, drawing sugar cane juice by twisting canes with his hands, and curing leprosy of a woman. He took samadhi on 8 September 1910. A temple in his name is built on his Samadhi at Shegaon.
