According to the instructions of Shri Gajanan Maharaj, the construction of the temple began in 1909. To manage the activities of the temple, a board of trustees was required. Hence the organisation "Shri Gajanan Maharaj Sansthan" was estabilished on 11th April 1909 with the blessings of Gajanan Maharaj.
On receiving Maharaj's consent, a few trustworthy people from shegaon were brought together and first Board of Trustees of the temple organisation was appointed.
Late Honrable HARI KUKAJI
The Shri Gajanan Maharaj Sansthan has been strictly abiding by the principles laid down by Shri Gajanan Maharaj. Since Money is not the main priority, the sansthan's objective is "Sarve Bhavantu Sukhenah" (May all be Happy). To achive this noble goal, the "Sevadharis" strive to take all measures possible to make everybody happy.
With the aim of putting into practice it's ideology of "Sarve Bhavantu Sukhenah" (May all be Happy) the sansthan has undertaken several social development projects. While implementing these project Sansthan has always kept in mind that "Service to humanity is Service to God". Cosequently, 42 different projects in the field of education, medicine, social welfare and spritual development are operational under the aegis of the Sansthan.
