GANAGAPUR - DATTATREYA

Ganagapur has professional hosts known as upadhyayas and they usually look after a new-comer quite well. In fact, till recently that was the only arrangement for lodging and boarding available at the place. Like many other kshetras throughout India, these upadhyayas have with them old records of visitors. If by any chance the name of one’s ancestor, who might have happened to visit the kshetra is found in the records of an upadhyaya the person is expected to go to that very upadhyaya as his guest. If not, he is claimed as a guest by the upadhyaya whose turn of playing host would be in force that day.

Recently a number of dharmashalas have been built, The most modern is one known as the Chidanand dharma shala. Rooms and even some utensils are rented in this dharmashala and except during yatras there is no limit on the number of days for which a person might stay at the place. This rest house was created in memory of one Chidanand Swami, a great Yogin who had stayed at Ganagapur and later on took samadhi in the Bhima.
