feeling blessed when i reached that place... and enjoyed a lot with friends.. go there once its such a nice place which make my day.
A holy place. It stands on a hill and you have to climb about 300 stairs. The temple displays a beautiful architecture and the whole area is drenched with turmeric. Parking facility is available at the base. This place has very positive energy.
Great place to be. This temple is dedicated to Khandoba, also called Malhari Martand, Totem for several communities in western Maharashtra. You'll have to climb ~300 paved steps, but are of uneven height. People offer Turmeric and often throw it a various idols around the temple. Also I've heard that the shopkeepers selling this Turmeric often adulterate it with artificial powder. If you have any kind of allergy, take precaution (or avoid). Cleanliness though better than several other temples, but could be improved.
Important place but very dirty as well at every moment you face beggers. In parking you will meet pigs. Roads are not quite wide. Holy place but govt or trust not able to maintain cleanliness.
Very positive feeling. Got completely drenched in turmeric powder. Very nice place
