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.

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.
