Suvarna Ganesh Temple
On 17th November 1997 while working in her coconut and bettlenut garden Shrimati Draupadi Dharma Patil, found a copper trunk weighing about 30 Kgs. In that trunk she found a 24 carat gold Ganesha mask weighing 1 Kg 325 gms. The inscription on the trunk read as 1060 AD. Later this idol was deified and instated in a temple in the village now called the Suvarna Ganesh Temple.
