The Vatawruksha Swami Temple is very old and nice place for religious retreat. Recommended to book the accomodation at Bhakta Nivas and stay overnight. There are religious rituals and activities starting from early morning till night. Don't miss the evening aarati around 8pm, followed by prasad at Annachhatra (delicious, free and heartful food) just beside the main temple (about 2-3 mins walk).
The town is not great except the Arms Museum and New Palace to visit. There is a good Shiva Temple at Shivapuri, which is about 4 kms from Akkalkot town. This place is very peaceful and serene and must visit if you happen to be in Akkalkot. Don't miss to visit the Samadhi Math before leaving Akkalkot. Recommended to go by a private vehicle, because the road condition and local autos are not good.

This is the place where swami samarth stayed for few years. It is a peaceful place if you get to visit without crowds, which is difficult. Moreover, the temple staff is all ready to make your experience unwanting by continuous pushing and reminding to move fast...........its very sad that you travel all the way to visit the temple from many kilometers and these people would not let you see the statue even for fraction of seconds............its irritating......temple surrounding are kept vey unhygienic like any other temples in India.......

The city, roads and overall cleanliness of the place is very poor...
Since I went there when it was raining, it was not at all a pleasant experience.
I felt very bad for the people who reside there looking at the conditions of the town in general.
Sadly, praying at the temple was the last thing on my mind.

Dream of visiting came true when we decided to visit Ganagapur on saturday and sunday. Travel from Hyderbad to Ganagapur is tiresome but we missed evening aarti. We stayed in Sri Guru Datta Lodge which is near the entrance of the holy place. We had Nijapada Darshan early morning at 3 am and really the place which echo the mantras and chant of Digambara Digambara Sripada vallabha Digambara fills the mind with peace. We had Abhishekam program along with paduka pooja. We were happy with Abhisheka but paduka pooja was not organised well. unnecessary pull and push created unhappiness among devotees. We enjoyed Annadanam and Madhukari which was an unique experience. We too begged for food in front of others door..... yes we were beggers in front of that Digambara. This spiritual work or dharmakarya of annadanam makes this place holy and unique.
