TULJAPUR - BHAVANI

The village of Tuljapur is in the Osmanabad district and lies on the bus-route connecting Sholapur and Osmanabad. From both these places hourly bus services are available. It takes about one and a quarter hour to reach TuIjapur from Sholapur and about one hour to go to that place from Osmanabad. Direct bus services link the place with some of the railway stations like Yedshi on the Kurduwadi-Latur branch line of the Central Railways.If a visitor merely intends to go for the darshan of the goddess, he could go and return the same day from any of the two district places mentioned earlier. But even if he wishes to stav at the kshetra very good arrangements exist. common place arrangement,of course, is that provided for by the upadhyayas of the kshetra. There is a large number of these upadhyayas at this place and the notable point regarding these upadhyayas is that they belong to all the castes and hence persons from various communities would find hosts belonging to their own community to welcome them. They not only play host to the visitor but are useful otherwise also. They take him round the kshetra explaining to him the legendary importance of each of the numerous shrines there and assist him in whatever rites he wants to perform at the kshetra. As far as rites in the main temple are concerned the rates are fixed by the managing committee and displayed publicly on a board for the convenience of the pilgrims. The local municipality has recently erected a resthouse for the benefit of the passengers. Those who want to visit the shrine but are perhaps reluctant to utilise the services of the kshetropadhvayas would definitely like this place. It is immediately opposite the bus stand. The building is quite decent and rooms are let out for a nominal charge of one rupee for twenty-four hours. There are some that would cost only eight annas for the same period. However, the boarding facilities are not as satisfactory as those of lodging ; specially for those who stay in the rest-house. The standard of cleanliness of the places providing food and edibles is not quite up to the mark. The town is otherwise quite neat and tidy with roads paved with concrete and lighting provided by electricity.
