 LORD KHANDOBA OF JAJURI

THE TEMPLE

There are two separate shrines dedicated to Lord Khandoba. Both of them are situated on the same range hills and are lying within a short distance between them; each has a well laid-out road. They go by the names of Karhe-pather and Gad-kot. The Gad-kot temple is built atop the Jayadri Hill and is enclosed by a strong stone wall resembling that of the rampart of a fort. It can be reached by two flights of steps from the foot of the hill. The ascent is tiresome, but is relieved by rows of dipmalas and arches all along the path. The memorial stone slabs bearing the carving of human figures fixed along the way relieve the tedium of the ascent. The first worth-seeing object is a stone with foot prints on. It is believed that here Shivaji met in 1662 AD his father Shahaji after a lapse of one full decade. As the two great Maratha leaders met here, the event was deemed sacred and so held in esteem. Next come two temples dedicated to Bania and Hegadi, who played great roles in temple activities and celebration of festivals.
