  TULJAPUR - TULJA BHAVANI MANDIR

This 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 Maharashtra 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 joins it is this Mata that metamorphosed a homely lad 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 Matanga; 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 Sri Rama - Lakshmana during then search for the abducted Sita and it is this temple that set up the practice of offering breakfast to the Mother in the morning before the ritualistic offer of Naivedya. Filling the lap of the Mother, shearing lock offering of garments etc., are very common and popular. And in the past slaughtering of animals and drinking of liquor were in vogue. Thanks to the reforms, the authorities stopped all those obnoxious practices and switched over to Satwika puja. Hence its popularity is winking, as modernity with sublime piety has introduced several traditions reflecting the spirit of changing trends. And permissible to all sections of people.
