What is the historical importance of Ganeshkhind Parner ?
Brahma used to say, Earlier, a great ascetic was named Bharadwaj in Avanti. He used to teach the Vedas to the students. One day, when he went to the Kshipra river, he was curious to see the beautiful lady taking bath and he lost his sperms. His sperms collected by Earth and from that soil earth gave birth to a child whose colour was as same as hibiscus flower.When the child was seven years old, he asked the earth. Why my body is not like other people?, my body is so red.
The earth told him story of previous birth story and he requested her to take him to his father.Prithvi took her to Bharadwaj Rishi and told him that he’s your child. Bhardwaj Rishi hugged him tightly and accepeted him as his child. After some days, he taught him Vedas and told him to study the indian culture. Bhardwaj rishi told him to chant Shri Ganesh Mantra and told him to worship god (Do Anushthana). He obediently took his father’s order and Prithvi’s son went to on the banks of Narmada River and did enchanted for Lord Ganesha for 1000 years. After his long tapasya on magh shuddha chaturdashi Lord Ganesha appeard infront of Prithvi’s son and told him to ask anything he wanted. Then he told that, I want to taste ‘Amrit’ while residing in heaven. My name should be taken in whole universe. And the day when you appeared infront of me it should be best for all the devotees if they come for my darshana. Lord Ganesh told him, I will complete all your desires. Your colour is red like fire (Agnee) so your name will be “Angarak” and your birth is given to you by Prithvi so people will also call you as a “Bhaum”. This type of offerings given by Lord Ganesha and then hi disappeared. Then, prithviputra Mangala built Dashabhuja Ganesha Temple on the same place. And named as “Mangalmurti”. Ganesha offered his blessings and Angarakh went on to service for him lifetime.The chaturthi comes on Somwar (On Monday) so its somvati chaturthi.Bhaum’s name was Angarakh so the chaturthi comes on Mangalwar(Tuesday) so its Angarakhi chaturthi. This Holy temple is located on southern sides of Parner.
