Jejuri, is one of the premier pilgrim centres of Maharastra, and occupies a pre-eminent place among the Saivate shrines of our Bharat. Its legendary glory is heightened by the historic importance wrung from the Moghuls by the matchless valour Maharastrian leaders. The presiding deity Khandoba, the local name for Maheswar too asserted and assumed His rudrarupa to drive away the Mlechchas, when they attempted to blow up the fort for looting its incalculable wealth, and desecrating it also.

This kshetra claims two independent shrines - one called Karhe pather and the other Gad-kot, lying on the same hill called Jayadri, but separated by only a short distance. It has a fascinating background, and Khandoba's appearance, accomplished the dushtasamhara - killing of Mani and Malla, the formidable demons born out of the remnants of Madhukaitabha asuras, died at the hands of Mahavishnu. Marthandavijaya and Jayadri Mahatya embody elaborate accounts of this Lord and His awesome sports played in the past.
