These two temples built on the bank of Chandrabhaga river in memory of that Bhaktajana parijata and Pitriseva parayana have been luring lakhs of devotees since time immemorial. They have several other unique features that brought to the state of Maharashtra a glittering feather to the envy of many more making similar claims.
