  PANDARPUR - RUKMINI MANDIR

It contains two samadhis of great oaints besides the images of Human and Garuda. Next comes the big mandap with well decorated gate. On either side of the middle gate lie the Dwarapalakas Jaya-Vijaya. There are images one of Ganesh and the other is that of Saraswati, holding the lotus, akshamala, parasu and book in hands. The central gate opens into Solakhamba mantap-a big hall with 16 pillars. The ceiling is beautified with scenes from the scriptures like Krishnalila etc. There are a number of cells containing the images of Kasi Vishwanath, Kalabhairav, Rama-Lakshmana, Dattatreya etc. There is a holy pillar called Garuda Stambha here and pilgrims embrace it after making money offerings. Next to it lies Choukamba with elephant gate leading to the Vital Dev's garbha griha. The archamurthi lies on a four feet high pedestal. The exterior of garbha griha is decorated with Maratha motifs of niches and minarets with stucco figures in the niches. The images of Narasimha, Radha Krishna, Vishnu adorn the niches in the walls and they are grand. The icon of archamurti is about four feet in height and casts a spell on the beholders. The akimbo pose is heightening the grandeur of Bhagawan vittal and rises hands in veneration.
