PANDHARPUR TOURS

THE SPIRITUAL capital of Maharashtra, Pandharpur is situated on the banks of the Chandrabbaga river and is the site of the sacred shrine of Vithobs, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu. The temple was built in 1228 and is the focal point of a sacred pilgrimage which draws thousands of Varakaris (members of one of the state’s most popular religious sects) here every July to attend the Kartik Ekadashi fair. Dindis or group processions travel to Pandharpur from every village in the area, accompanied by devotional singing. The river front, lined with numerous bathing ghats, comes alive with crowds of people, who gather here for their ritual dip.
