Dehu-Alandi-Shri Kshetra Narayanpur

11-Aug-2013

Had a quick unplanned one day trip to Dehu-Alandi-Narayanpur.

Hajrat Sayyad Angadshah Baba Dargah

On the way to Dehu, we visited Hajrat sayyad Angadshah Baba Dargah. A quite place with a well and Baniyan tree. It seems the palkhi of Sant Tukaram Maharaj first stops at this place, while going to Wari to Pandharpur.

Dehu

            We visited Gatha Mandir of Sant Tukaram Maharaj.  All “Abhang” of Maharaj were written all over on the walls. Nice structure and nice statues. Was able to do photography, but came to know later that photography was not allowed inside the temple. We took coupons for Prasad and then went to prasadalaya in the complex. On the first floor, there was a big hall and temple of Shri Dnyaneshwar Maharaj. Nice statue, here as well. Had very tasty Prasad consists of dal, rice, aloo-mutter, chapatti and sivaya khir.

Never visited the temple, from where, there was Garud, who took Shri Turaram Maharaj to Swarga-lok. This temple is on the way to Gatha Mandir, so no need to go to interior of Dehu Village.

Alandi

            We visited Sant Dnyaneshwar Maharaj Samadhi Stan. Very old structure. Went to Indrayani river Ghat. Never visited few more places in Alandi, as want to go to Narayanpur.

Prati-Balaji

            This is on the way to Narayanpur. Very good temple of Shri Venkateshwarya. Very clean temple. Mobile, cameras were not allowed inside the temple. You can deposit at the start of queue. One can see different types of bhajans were sing by different groups.

Shri Kshetra Narayanpur

            This is somewhat 10kms from Prati Balaji Temple.

EakMukhi Datta Maharaj

            Nice idol of Shri Datta Maharaj, which is one headed, more than 4 feet tall. I have seen eakmukhi datta maharaj on Godavari ghat at Nashik

Narayaneshwar Temple

This seems to be very old Shiv Temple adjacent to Datta Mandir. It is said that the Shiv Linga is in “Gupt” form and Jijabai, mother of Shivaji Maharaj donated Gold Shiv Linga here, which I guess was same as seen in the temple.

Small children were playing “phugadi”, I guess because of Shravan month and today was “Nag Panchami”.
