SHOLAPUR - SIDDHESWAR MANDIR

The State of Maharastra is a typical example of a commendable confluence of almost all major cultures, and the seat of grand ancient temples built for all gods, like Vinayaka, Siva, Vishnu, Sakti etc. places like Pandharpur, Tuljapur, Ganagapur, Kolhapur, Sholapur, Jejuri, Alandi and Morgaon have attained global importance, and are beckoning ardent devotees of all creeds and cults. Sivaalayas of Tryambak, Bhimasankar, Omkareswar, Mahabaleswar occupied highest place on the tourist map of India even. Among the lesser important ones, only in points of construction and visitation, - the Sholapur Siddheswar temple deserves first mention. Though its pull is comparatively low, its location and divinity exert great influence on the people of state and its neighborhood. Saivates of all states visit and are being blessed by the Lord.

This Siddheswara holy shrine lies in the centre of the flourishing town of Sholapur and is situated on a higher plinth. Its vast complex studded to its portals with several Saivate gods in grand, well-built minishrines, and a large temple Pushkarini in front of the Archamurti facing east cast enchantment on the visitors. The sublimity of the environs and divinity of the gods detain the visitors longer than their allotted time for visit. Saivagama puja with rituals is offered regularly and the periodical festivals like Sivaratri are celebrated with unparalleled enthusiasm. The modernity exuding from the antiquity of the kshetra is heightening its importance. It is a miss-not Siva kshetra of perpetual significance.

It lies in the Sholapur town of Maharastra, commanding rail road facilities.
