GANAGAPUR - DATTATREYA

The story goes that the body of this yogin was recovered near a village named Itagi and a samadhi erected over it. Bhakts donated large sums amounting to more than a hundred thousand rupees. This money was utilised for the construction of this dharmashala. The building is quite modern and airy and affords excellent view of the river side. In addition to the upadhyayas there are the Joshis and the Salakaris. Both have specific temple services. The services of the Joshi would be required by the pilgrim Practically immediately on arrival at Ganagapur. The kshetra compasses an area of nearly four square miles and several temples and sacred spots are scattered over this area. It is theprofession of the Joshis to take the pilgrim around the kshetra and to explain the significance of the various spots to him. The services of these guides are, therefore, needless to say, quite valuable to a visitor. The Joshis would also guide the pilgrim about the various rites to be performed at particular spots.
