INTRODUCTION

They left behind magnificent relics in several forms, their very sight purges one of the sins clinging to the body, and instill lofty idealism, enabling him to see inward first, and outward next that ensures a harmonious peaceful coexistence. To add to these ancient monuments, the sacred spots of habitation of modern nation-builders, like Tilak and Gandhi in the field of politics, and Jnaneswar and Tukaram in philosophy deserve visitation of immense significance. Why, the places of their birth and samadhis too have become national monuments of international importance, and as such, the state is dotted with countless visit-worthy places of both mythological importance and political significance. Among the scores of such places of perpetual interest and perinnial inspiration, a judicious selection has listed down only twelve for instant visitation. And sure salvation too. Even though a cross-section of the selection reveals the premier saktipithas, Saiva Kshetras, Vaishnava thirthas, Sampradaya kendras, Siddhapurusha nilayas etc., embodying a fair representation of each type, it is inexhaustive. Limitation of space barred the admission of many, and so an appeal in made to the enthusiastic pilgrims and tourists to visit other similar kshetras, like the famous Ashtavinayaka Kshetras hinted in the Mayureswar of Morgoan write-up.
