       LORD BHIMASHANKAR OF SAHYADRI

Another is the Silamandir tying to the right of the main shrine. It contains the very sacred stone on which Tukaram sat for 13 days praying to Vittal, sans food and sleep, when his book of abhangas disappeared in the river Indrani. In the end, Bhagavan Vittal restored to him the lost treasure. That stone is installed here, and so the prayers due. In addition to these, they are many mini-shrines in the temple containing the images of adorable gods, like Maheswar, Vinayak etc.

Around the shrine, at very short distance are found Machchi ghat. Bhandar parvat, Gopalpur etc. Each is associated with the glory of the saint. The Machchighat is the very same place from which Tukaram's abhangas surfaced. It contains many fishes and said to be visiting Alandi and Pandurpur every year during the festivals. The Bhandar mount is associated with Tukaram's writing of songs, and Gopalpur is the spot from where the saint went to heaven.
