KRISHNAVTAR  KSHETRAS IN MAHARASTRA

Kesharpuri - Kesava Mandir

This Vaishnava kshetra dedicated to Kesava, although found in dilapidated state, is declaring its past glory by its sculptural adornments and imposing dimensions. This once famous pilgrim town Kesavapuri has also undergone a change in its name and now called Kesharpur. It is in the Marthwada region of Maharastra state. Its architectural pattern embodies in it all the essential parts, like garbha griha, antarala, mukhamandap, mahadwara, pradakshihapatha etc, and they are majestic. The wall panels are adorned with many sculptural pieces due to liberal patronage by the royal families. The ceiling is elaborately carved with many adorable deities, like Narasimha, Parvathi, Siva, Ganesh, Kartikeya, etc. and they detain the visitors with the exquisite craftsmanship of the sculptors. This twelfth century Chalukyan construction enjoyed enviable reputation in the past, but now in debris. Yatris and archaeolbgists are visiting even now on account of its sculptural divinity it excellences and the embodies.

It lies 5km east to Majalgaon, the taluq headquarters town in the Marathwada region of Maharastra, accessible by four wheelers.
