KHANDOBA - JEJURI

The Somavati amavasya comes every three months. The most recent festival -1961-had attracted around forty to fifty thousand pilgrims. During these festivals it is on the State buses that most people depend for their transport. For such local fairs, the Railways cannot naturally make special arrangements, nor is the problem that of a long distance transportation. Hence the main burden falls on the bus service and it is to be mentioned that they do a tremendous job of hauling so any people to and fro quite efficiently. The chief feature of the day is the bath that the god is to take on the Karha river For that purpose the deity is to be brought down the hill in a palanquin.

In the early morning after the first session of daily worship is over, people from the town,some of whom enjoy a hereditary right of performing certain functions in the ceremonial, go up the hill to the accompaniment of bands of musicians. The images of Khandoba and Mhalsa are placed in the palanquin and a very large pro cession starts its down-ward journey the pace is extremely slow.
