Shri Moreshwar Ganpati temple (or Shri Mayureshwar Ganpati temple) is a quite big and ancient Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Ganesha. The temple was built in the 14th century, is a treat to visit for Ganesha devotees. This temple is located in Morgaon (Village of Peacocks) about 65 km (2 hrs) from Pune District. The temple is 230 km from Mumbai (4 hrs). The temple is the starting and ending point of Ashtavinayak Yatra/Tour (a pilgrimage of eight famous Ganesha temples). 

I traveled here with my family by car. We saw quite a lot goats and sheep on the way. Pathik loved it.There wasn't much rush while we visited, and got Darshan within 10 minutes. The Ganesh Idol is also very beautiful. It is certainly a very peaceful place, having positive vibes. We loved it and sat here for 1 hour, within temple premise near a tree. There is always a liveliness near the temple areas shops, and people are quite energetic. No one can miss sweet guavas sold outside the temple. There are quite a lot food options nearby.

Vehicle Parking: Good part, There was free car parking space available, when we visited. 

Lord Ganeshji is riding a peacock so he is called Mayureshwar. The temple is easily accessible by climbing few steps and built on a raised platform. The temple is built with black stone with a big surrounded wall & the beauty of the architecture can be seen all over the temple. This temple is situated on the banks of river Karha. The two main attractions are (a) An idol of Nandi (Bull) is situated at the entrance of the temple.  (b) Nagaraj (Cobra) poised over the idol protecting the lord. 

Best time to have a peaceful darshan (visit) is on week-days except Ganesha festival days. The temple tends to attract a lot of crowd during Chaturthi and during the 11 days long Ganesh festival mostly in the month of Sep- Oct. Avoid week ends and holidays.
