Its a good religious place however the temple surroundings are terribly maintained. the back side has a lot of mud water and 5-6 pigs roaming around them. Its only inside the temple you feel divine. the management of temple need to learn from the Shegaon managment.

Religious place. Well managed. Ample place for darshan. Mahaprasad (Free and hygienic food) for visitors. Watavrukhsha of temple is very old. No fees for darshan and no body asks for donation. You can donate if you wish.

The Vatawruksha Swami Temple is very old and nice place for religious retreat. Recommended to book the accomodation at Bhakta Nivas and stay overnight. There are religious rituals and activities starting from early morning till night. Don't miss the evening aarati around 8pm, followed by prasad at Annachhatra (delicious, free and heartful food) just beside the main temple (about 2-3... More

This is the place where swami samarth stayed for few years. It is a peaceful place if you get to visit without crowds, which is difficult. Moreover, the temple staff is all ready to make your experience unwanting by continuous pushing and reminding to move fast...........its very sad that you travel all the way to visit the temple from many...
