Crossing this, we enter the garbhagriha which has a square
- a small shrine within a shrine. It enshrines two swayambhu lingas covered with
silver plates one standing for Lord Khandoba and the other for his consort
Mhalsa. There are also some more pairs of images of Khandoba-Mhalsa here. The
image of Khandoba reveals in holding sword, trishula, dhamaru and bowl and that
of Mhalsa with lotus buds in her hands. The pair installed in the centre was
gifted by Sarfoji Bhosle of Tanjore. Some are silver made, and one is made
of gold too. Behind the statues is seen the figure of Khandoba with his weapons
and the figures of jogeshvaris on either side. These are the objects of worship.
And offering prayer with rituals, we emerge out. A gigantic size tortoise,
called Rangasila measuring 28 feet in diameter greets us. It is used as platform
for conducting bhajan and concerts. Straight opposite to this lies a cell used
for performing Bagad and the one behind it houses a nine foot high image of
demon Mani. The prakara contains some more mini shrines housing Tuljabhavani,
Ganesh, Panchalingeswara and so on.
