 LORD KHANDOBA OF JAJURI

Crossing this, we enter the garbhagriha which has a square 'Devaghar' - 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.
