KHANDOBA - JEJURI

The pillared verandahs that surround the temple were constructed by the famous Maratha general Dhanaji Jadhav. The arched cloisters and the magnificent gate ways along with bastioned wall that surrounds the temple are attributed to the Shindes of Gwalior. It is also More than likely that the shikhars were also constructed by them and that the shrine itself was largely restored by them.

The garbhagriha contains the object of worship as the kshetra, which like that of Jejuri is a pair of swayambhu lings representing the god Khandoba and his wife Mhalsa. So also there are the images of the two in the temple, that do not differ iconographically from those at Jejuri.
