I have become a firm believer of Shri Swami Samarth. The temple is so nice, clean, well maintained, not so crowded & all given equal importance. It is truly a magical place with great hospitable people around.

though I am not a strong follower of Swami ji, I happened to visit for darshan with friends. It is around 45 mins - 1 hr drive from Solapur depending on traffic conditions. Cheap stay options are around the temple.
