At a distance of 1 km from Harihareshwar Temple, and 2 km from Harihareshwar Bus Stop, Ganesh Gully is a pilgrimage spot located in Harihareshwar, Maharashtra. It is one of the popular places to visit in Harihareshwar while holidaying in the Konkan region.

As the name suggests, Ganesh Gully is a narrow passage of about 3 feet wide. It is between two rocks, where a path is paved, leading to a sea-bed. It is said that an idol of Lord Ganesh is submerged in the water around 30 feet deep and can be seen only during low tide. Many tourists visit this place to have a glimpse of the Ganesh Idol. There are black rocks on the viewpoint which meet the sea. The sea waves collapse on these rocks enhancing the beauty of this viewpoint.

Going up there itself is an adventure and further adds to the overall experience like nothing better. To reach the spot, one has to climb the staircase of the Harihareshwar temple. As mentioned, the place is at the temple area and hence it is called Shukla Tirth viewpoint. About 1 km trekking is needed to reach this point and is risky as well. It is recommended that children, old people, and physically handicapped people must not get here.
