Story of the Temple

The Legend associated with the origin of Shri Siddhi Vinayak Temple :
In the vicinity of Shri Siddhi Vinayak Temple itself Bhagwan Vishnu had done Sadhana after which Madhu and Kaitabha (both demons) who battled with him for thousands of years were finally killed.
Bhagwan Shiv had instructed Shri Hari Vishnu to do Ganesh Vandan before the start of the final battle between them, it is only after that the battle which had gone on for thousands of years finally came to an end and bhagwan Vishnu emerged victorious.
The Siddhi Vinayak Temple became the place where Bhagwan Shri Hari Vishnu after the thorough prayers to bhagwan Ganesh attained his siddhi and blessings, hence Ganesh Ji from then on came to be known as Siddhi Vinayak (and the temple as Siddhi Vinayak Temple).
Bhagwan Ganesh in the Siddhi Vinayak swaroop granted the wish of bhagwan Brahma to create the universe and this nature. Lord Brahma did countless jaap of the OM mantra to impress and appease bhagwan Ganesh and finally, he was blessed by the Siddhi Vinayak swaroop.
Once lord Brahma not only received the energy to create the universe with the blessings of Bhagwan Siddhi Vinayak, but he also accepted the wish of Bhagwan Brahma to accept the two daughters of Bhagwan Brahma Riddhi and Siddhi as his wife.
