 LORD KHANDOBA OF JAJURI

He was confounded and found completely paralysed . When guidance from a Hindu soldier was sought for, he replied that Lord Khandoba is a powerful god and is ever vigilant to protect his votaries. He would not spare sacrilege and would avenge in several ways till it was totally wiped out. And added that by appeasing him alone, the trouble would be got over. The listening Moghul at once ordered an offering of a lakh and quarter coins to God. When made, the bees disappeared soon. 'How' did not bother the conqueror, but one thing he knew thoroughly well was, that he was unequalled to that dreadful god, so he bade a disgraceful retreat. Hail Khandoba Hail! Hail!! Hail!!! Sure he tolerates not impaiety, nor tarries in granting the needed by the ardent devotees. Offering soulful prayers to the Sivalinga representing the Lord's eternal vigilance and All-Potent miracles, the visitors move a little to enter the main enclosure. The vast flat ground is covered with stone pavement and there lies in the centre main shrine. The courtyard is surrounded by arched aisles and they are serving as places of rest for weary pilgrims. The massive prakara has three gate ways. The Northern gate with Nagarkhana is the main. The outermost portion of the temple has an arched portico. It houses the famous Khanda - big sword measuring four feet in length and four inches in breadth. It is with this powerful sword he killed his formidable foes. Hence held very sacred. Praying to this, we enter the mandap built in the Yadava architectural style. It houses two big stone horses one with Khandoba seated and the other without a rider.
