We visited Akalkot Maharaj shrine in Nov 2016. Luckily it was not so crowded and therefore we could have leisurely darshan. One can experience Lord Dattatreya's presence in this temple. Swamiji's padukas, bed,etc. are on display for devotees to touch and venerate. Digambara Digambara Sree paadha Vallabha Digambara.

One can feel the energy and blessings of Swami Samarath. We met a volunteer who explained entire story and showed us important points inside mutt. Parking is available near to temple.

It is a great place if you are religious type person. It is said that swamy ji was guru of sai of shirdi. Therefore a lot of Sai devotees throng this place .There are arrangements for the short stay of the devotees.
