In this renowned Vishnava Kshetna, Mother Rukmini enjoys pre-eminent place along with Bhagavan Vithal, whose sway over mass and class is beyond description in Maharashtra. The Panduranga temple is fairly a big one built in the heart of the town, on the bank of Chandrabagha, a tributary of river Krishna. It is surrounded by a high sturdy wall with entrances, adorned with towers. It stands on a high plinth occupying 370 feet east-west and 170 feet north west. Mother Rukmini gives darsan only after her Lord Panduranga's. So let us enter and proceed to avail his darsan first. The chief entrance-Mahadwara with a flight of twelve steps faces east and is called the Namadev gate, named after a great thirteenth centuries representing the members of Namdev's family. The first figure holding tambourine in hand is that of Namdev.

Crossing the Namdev gate, we enter a roofed passage with Nagarkhana on it. It has three rooms on either side, housing the images like Ganesh etc. This is called Mukti Mandap. Ascending half a dozen steps again, we enter a spacious quadrangle with long aisles.
