      JNANESWAR MAHARAJ OF ALANDI 

Among the sampradays like the Varkiri sampradaya, Nath sampradaya, Datta sampradaya, Ganesh sampradaya, Sakteya sampradaya, the Vaishnava sampradaya deserves deep study. Its strength lies in the strength of its founders and followers. The temple at Alandi extant visited by people in their lakhs to pay obeisance to that illustrious leader Jnaneswar Maharaj has a beginning, mysterious and a history glorious. It embodies many more plus points. Though there are many controversies about the facts concerning the dates of his birth, learning, tours, authorship and nirvana, it is affirmed by no less that a great saint Eknath that Alandi is the place where Jnaneswar attained samadhi. And he introduced the practice of yearly visit to the samadhi for worship. Since then it has been attracting the attention of theists and scholars of repute, who with the munificent funds of great philanthropists built a fitting memorial. It houses a few images of Hindu pantheon, the Principal being the Vittala and Rukmini of Pandharpur. Among other worth seeing places in this temple, the Jnanadev wall is very popular and lures pilgrims and theists most. Alandi is also the abode of Lord Siddeswara, besides being the centre of Nath sampradaya. Hence eternal attraction. Sanctified for enshrining the samadhi of the most pre-eminent saint of Maharashtra, Alandi has became one of the premier centres of Advaithamata and a pilgrimage centre of eternal attraction.
