KHANDOBA - JEJURI

Long long ago there was a great devotee of the god who used to go and visit the shrine daily. The man grew old but never altered his routine of going to the Karhe-Pathar. One day as he was struggling up the hill the efforts became too much for him and he collapsed there. In his agony the thought that he could not visit his dear god never left him. This devotion of his moved the god who appeared on the spot to please him. Seated on a white charger the godassured the old man that he would come and stay on the lower hill that is, Gad-kot, so that his devotee would be spared a good deal of trouble. The horse jumped and descended on the Gad-kot. The old man hastened to the spot to find the two swayambhu lings there. The Karhe-Pathar is a small plateau in the midst of which stands the shrine, which is supposed to be the more ancient and as such the original centre here. This also consists of an arched portico a mandap and a garbhagriha. From its construction it seems the structure belongs to the eighteenth or late seventeenth century.
