Khandoba Temple, Jejuri Reviews
Its a beautiful temple near Pune with approx 1.5-2 hrs drive. Its nice to visit when its crowded as its a different feeling when you see devotees offering turmeric to the deity. Such an amazing site. There are steps to access the temple which you can cover in approx 30 mins.There is another shortcut too, which is derivable and have less number of steps. Thank You......
Very holy place. Takes good amount of efforts to climb stairs from main entrance. If elderly people are accompanying you, better choose entrance from backside of temple. Almost 50% reduced efforts. Lot of turmeric (Haldi) in the temple. Elated atmosphere!
Location wise place is good and not so difficult to find. Parking space was also well managed. The only issue was the crowd. This temple was heavily crowded, and even the queue was also not well managed. It took almost 2.5 hours to reach to main temple in queue. And just to see the main idol for less than even 30 seconds.
Nice place for Visiting Khandoba climbing the stairs is another adventure.. normal prefer wearing yellow coloured clothes as there is lots of turmeric which is thrown in the air for the god Khandoba..... Hence good place to visit...
Awesome devotional place. Needs to pay more attention on the infrastructre. It is tough to reach at the top where our beloved God Khanderaya resides. It needs physical stamina a lot. I think one thing is very necessary that is availability of drinking water.
