TULAJAPUR - MOTHER BHAVANI'S UNUSUAL HUNGER

The temple built on the Yamunachala by Viswakarma at the behest of Brahma according to legends has several unique features that bid instant visitation; for it is this Jaganmata who has been staying here at the instance of an ardent devotee Anubhuti by name in the dim past; it is this Mother who played a dominant role to keep aloft the Maharastra banner; it is for this Bhavani, Brahma commissioned Viswakarma to build a shrine; it is for this Mother, the Kallola thirtha - the repository of the waters of all the rivers in the Punya Bharat was created; it is this Mata that metamorphosed a homely lad- Sivaji into an empire builder of universal recognition; it is this Mother that has the unique habit of going to sleep thrice a year when special prayer services are suspended in the main temple, it is this Mother who played chess with the pious Mahant daily, it is this Mother who assumed the fiercest form to kill a demon called Matang; it is this Mother's image that was smashed to powder by the Muslim bigot Afzal khan; it is this temple that enshrines a big boulder sanctified by the sitting of Rama and Lakshmana during their search for the abducted Sita; it is to this temple's famous Dharathirth, waters of Ganga, Jamuna and Saraswati flow down; and it is this temple that set up the practice of offering of breakfast to the Mother in the morning' before the ritualistic offer of Naivedyam. On account of enervating tough schedule of work she is to attending to, she feels her bowels making noise and so allows breakfast offering as soon as the doors are opened even without attending to cleaning of garbha griha.

Location : The temple lies in Tulajapur, accessible by four wheelers from Sholapur; Maharastra.
