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.
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.
