GANAGAPUR -DATTATREYA

Something might be profitably said about the other two Dattatreya sthans as well. Audumbar is a very small village populated rather recently, near the railway station Bhilavadi on the Southern railway’s Poona- Bangalore track. A visitor has to cross the river Krishna by ferry and it is advisable to avoid the rainy season when the river is in spate. The kshetra itself is on the Krishna river. There are some good dharmashalas at this place : the pujaris also receive and accommodate visitors. The chief centre of attraction is, as at Ganagapur, a set of two loot-prints or padukas. During the last century the princes of the Sangli state and a number of other devotees have caused to be built a temple over the padukas and ghats on the river. The routine of worship of the padukas is not much different from that at Ganagapur. On each Saturday and full-moon day, except during the four months of Ashadha, Shravan, Bhadrapad and Ashvin, the palkhi is taken out. The birth anniversaries  of Shri Dattatreya, Shri Shripad Shrivallabha and Shri Nrisimha Sarasvati. the Guru-pratipada, are some of the festivals celebrated here.The expenses of the routine and ceremonial rites are defrayed mainly through popular contributions although there are certain annual grants made for some specific purposes such as the palakhi procession and the chaughada. At Audumbar also a large number of Sevakaris come and stay to obtain relief from some malady or other, some divine curse or super natural evil.
