TULJAPUR - BHAVANI

Along the same line are other tirths. These are in the nature of small tanks or wells and recently cupola-like structures have been erected to cover them. Inscribed plates indicate which tirth is what. A guardian or upadhyaya is sitting near each of these tirths and guides the visitor about the rites to be performed at each. There are the Ganeshtirth, the Amrit-kund, also known as the Sudha kund. The whole assemblage of these tirths is kept remarkably clean and tidy. Near them are small shrines to some deities like Siddhi- vinayak, Vitthal, Dattatreya etc. Then to the east of the Gomukh tirth, but outside the precincts of the temple courtyard is the Mankavati tirth or the Vishnu tirth. This is a huge reservoir, resembling a step well. The arched construction of the aisles around it showing that it is a building of the late Maratha period.
