Swami Samarth (Akkalkot Maharaj) is regarded as the re-incarnation of the Lord Dutta. Apparently there are five temples for Akkalkot Maharaj within the same proximity.The Samadhi Mandir is located in a separate location and seem to be managed as a separate entity. We visited one temple and Samadhi Mandir (about 1 km distance from each other).

The convenient way to reach there is by road. 45 km away from Solapur. Best time to visit is between 2 to 5 pm. The temple is less crowded and you can sit inside the temple and pray at peace.

I visit every year. The place is near to Solapur. One can reach there by road or rail. The best option is by private cab as the road is in good condition. One can reach in 45 minutes.

Truly a holy place of worship where Swami Samarth Maharaj Math lies is a blessing. Swami is regarded as the re-incarnation of the Lord Dutta the generator of the Shrishti ( Universe). A humble place where religious environment is at the highest form and commercialities has not yet touched the place like the better known Temples in India. A must... More
