There is banyan tree that partially covers temple entrance & temple itself. Serene air & devotees walking in & out without rush was nice to see at this time of... More

Located about an hours drive, this temple location is a simple premise with all basic facility . The Darshan is well orchestrated and the devotees are all disciplined . There are specific official timings and arrangements for abhishek etc. The pujaris are non materialistic and non pushy. They help devotees with the divine darshan. We followed it up with prasad...

The place is holy and there is no trace of commercialisation. Excellent arrangement for devotees. Its a small village, only about 45 km from Solapur.

we travelled from tuljapur and the journey is quite painstaking. we reached in the evening and got ourselves accommodation at the premises next to the temple. whilst we paid for a.c room, the quality was extremely bad. the roof was leaking and the attached bathroom was dirty. we negotiated auto for mini-akkalkot darshan and visited few other prominent places around....

My visit to Aakkalkot Maharaj temole was very intense and serious. The temple is separate from Samadhi approx. 2kms away. The temple where aartis(prayers) and snana (morning bath of Maharaj) takes place has a very pious and quiet atmosphere. Morning Aarti especially is very blissful experience.The samadhi is run mostly by descendants of the family that looked after Akkalkot Maharaj... More

Both can be done on the same day and stay is recommended in Akkalkot. Day2: Travelled... More

We visited the Swami Samarth's temple on a Saturday evening and surpsingly we found the place to be orderly, simple and untouched by capitalistic mindset. What to see: Swami Samarth's temple is known to everyone. There is a Bhakt Niwas bang opposite the temple. The temple is the Tree under which Swami Samarth would spend time and do his daily... More
