Near by places to visit are Prati Shirdi Shirgaon, Sant. Tukaram Karma bhumi Dehu. You can visit all these places in one day.

This Idol is made by Sarala Birla. Property is register by Jaishree Charity trust. Murtikar are Maturam & Naresh Varma. This Idol has 72 foot height & is places on 18x54x54 foot big Chourag. Is weight is more than 1000 ton.It requires 2 year to complete the work. Number 9 is a Shubh therefore all calculations are around 9 like height72=7+2=9, width=54=5+4=9, Chourang 18=1+8=9.
