PEDHE-PARASHURAMA

But in the year 1847 A.D. the then Governor of Bombay seems to have reconsidered the question and declared that his Bhargavpatti was no longer obligatory. This reduced the levy to the status of a voluntary grant made to the temple. Even then a handsome amount was collected till some years back. Recently however, the revenues from this head have fallen to zero. Just as the Angres had made a grant of this Bhargavpatti the Peshwa Nanasahib gave the village of Tolkhurd in the Rajapuri division as an Inam grant to the shrine. This was in 1754 A.D. The Peshwa also aided the repair work necessary and in fulfilment of a vow taken by this lieutenant, one Ramachandra Ganesh, caused to be erected a drumhouse, a nagarkhana, above the gateway and made an additional grant of twelve hundred rupees to meet the expenses of the chaughada, the band of musicians maintained for the service of the god. Very recent legislation has aflected the shrine rather adversely and the kshetra which was never rich is now in a most unenviable condition.
