 MOTHER BHAVANI OF TULJAPUR

It is this Mata that metamorphosed a homely lad into an empire builder of universal recognition; it is this Mother that has the unique habit of going to sleep thrice a year, when special prayer services are suspended in the main temple; it is this Mother who played chess with the pious Mahant daily; it is this Mother who assumed the fiercest form to kill a demon called Matang; it is this Mother's image that was smashed to powder by the Muslim bigot Afzal khan; it is this temple that enshrines a big boulder sanctified by the sitting of Sri Rama - Lakshmana during their search for the abducted Sita; it is to this temple's famous Dharathirth, waters of Ganga Yamuna and Saraswati flow down; and it is this temple that set up the practice of offering of breakfast to the Mother in the morning before the ritualistic offer of Naivedya.

Renowned in the legend and history; patronised by illustrious rulers; worshipped as the Kulaswamini of the entire Marathi race; eulogised by saint poets and chronicles; admired by Brahma, served by Viswakarma and Punya thirthas; and adored by the warrior clan, this Jaganmatha Bhavani is luring a steady influx of pilgrims of all nationals since the Krita yuga.
