Khandoba is the local name of that Kailasaspipati Paramasiva in the state of Mahaarastra, particularly in the region around Pune, and he has been abiding on the Jayadri hill after the death of Mani and Malta in accordance with the ardent wish of the sages, who were taunted and tortured by those formidable demons. Coming to the actual episode, his volunteering to stay at a place easily accessible to a pious old devotee testified to his apara Vastalya; which is not only awe-inspiring but demonstrating to the world that bhakti makes the highest God to be subservient to the genuine Bhaktas. Read the following for full grasp of the episode of Khandoba's jumping down from his mount to the spot of an aged Bhaktas and assuring him that be would remain there for ever for the latter's trouble-free aaradhana. This of course happened in the dim past in the state of Maharastra. A brief account of its origin helps for quick grasp. So read.

Lord Khandoba, a very popular god of Maharastrians, next to that of Vitoba is abiding in two temples on the Jayadri hills. This god of masses ordained the worship of his own sworn foe s along with him i.e., causing their images placed on His either side on the same pedestal-a feature unique, unheard of in the history of mankind. His exhibition of pugnacity is equally matched with the display of magnanimity that has no parallels: The sight of God and Satan on the same vedika has no parallels, nor the Mother earth points to another similar place anywhere. And many more special features are abounding in the twin shrines, built on the Jayadri, popularly known as Jeguri in state of Maharastra. These two temples - Karhe-pather and Gad-kot located rear Pune gave certain strange customs reflecting the height that devotion can reach.
