During the rule of the Madhavrao I (or Thorle Madhav Rao Peshwa ) (14 February 1745 – 18 November 1772) , to resolve the drought situation in the town, the tank was de-silted to provide drinking water to the town. It was during the de-silting operations that the idol was found buried. The idol of god Ganesha was found by Peshwa sardar Ramchandra Mehendale buried in the silt. Soon thereafter, the renovation of the temple was undertaken and a stone temple was built. Chimmaji Appa under the rule of Peshwa Madhavrao I consecrated the ancient Ganesha idol in this new temple, after the conquest of Vasai fort. Initially, the temple was very small with a wooden sabha mandap (audience hall), which was in a run-down condition.
