Of all the persons responsible for its growth and glory, Brahmendra Swami deserves first mention, and his role is memorable. Having visited this area by chance, he found the temple in dilapidated condition. He was a sanyansi, but wielded great powers, as he had large following. His influence on the rulers of Maharashtra was so great that he commanded their soldiers and coffers too. Utilising the goodwill of the public and power of the rulers, he started renovation work on a gigantic scale. Besides renovating the fallen structures, he caused the building of Sabhamandap, aisles and minishrines. The entire campus was a' given a face lift. Chatrapati Sahu, Chimraji Appa helped him in the renovation activity. Unfortunately the Siddis of Janjiru were averse to the growth of Hindu temples. When the aggressive ventures directed against him very often, he left and settled down elsewhere. So, the temple remained closed for a decade. Later, one Shivabhat with the help of Tulaji, a Maharashtra admiral secured annual grant for regular worship. A sanad was released authorizing the collection of two rupees from each village and it was called Bhargavapatti. When resistance was expressed, then collection of one anna per head in that region was ordered. This too was made optional in 1847 by the Governor of Bombay, when complaints were made to him. But, from time to time repairs and additions were made by devotees as exemplified by the erection of drum house on the gate way. It is only with the income from Navas and cash offerings, the prayer services are being carried on since long.
