KHANDOBA - JEJURI

After some distance is crossed a spot is shown where a pair of footprints is seen carved in stone. It is related that this spot represents the meeting place of Shivaji and his father Shahaji. Shahaji had placed his young son in charge of his jagirs in and around Poona and was himself busy in the south. He had not met his son for nearly a decade and decided to go to Poona to see him. On hearing the news Shivaji advanced up to Jejuri to welcome and honour his father, and the two met each other near the foot of the hill. The meeting is supposed to have taken place in 1662 A.D.

A little further up are small temples to Banai and Hegadi. Who these people are and how they came here is narrated later on. Suffice it to say here that they have important parts to play in the various festivals that take place at-this kshetra.
