KHANDOBA - JEJURI

The customs of taking of vows and their fulfilment are quite similar to those at Jejuri although the number of Muralis at this place is quite insignificant. In general, this kshetra is only secondary in importance and but for the marriage ceremony of the god is neglected by the devotees for all intents and purposes.

The legendary accounts about the presence of the god here are conspicuous by their absence as the MalhariMahatmya is silent on that point. Various records from the Maratha period mentiondonations and grants to the temple and speak of its popularity. Its geographical position, that is, its not being on any of the main high ways of the region might have contributed to its relegation as a secondary centre of Khandoba worship.
