Who will not say no when asked to have darshan of Shri Swami Samarth. Well connected with Solapur; only disadvantage is that the entire stretch of 39 kms is bumpy drive. Do travel by MSRTC which connects the city every 15 mins.

Approached from Hyderabad to akkalkot using GPS. Suddenly the GPS signal lost and I had to ask the localites who guided me through alur, murum to akkalkot. The road through this is very bad and typically off road experience. Road stretch is under construction and only heavy vehicles plying. At last reached akkalkot and found a parking place opposite to... More

We went to Akkalkot Swami Samath Maharaj Temple. We understood the significance of the place and the temple from the Pujari's of the temple. We came to know that Swami Samath Maharaj was the fourth incarnation of Bhagavan Dattatreya. This is certainly a must visit place if you happen to travel to Solapur.

Location is peaceful and divine. the stay near the temple is a bit chaotic, but you can opt for the stay hostel, which is on the outskirt, which is preety huge and quiet.
