Avoid visiting the temple during Ekadashi

The Vithoba and Rumkimi temple in Pandharpur are very crowded during Ekadashi, so avoid visiting the temple during that time. Online darshan booking is available on other days, so one that plan and book the darshan accordingly. Cleaniness has increased over the past. There are 2 types of darshans - Dharma darshan (from near) and Mukha darshan (from far), so one can choose the type of darshan based on the crowd and time available.

Very nice Temple

Pandharpur is just 75 kms from solapur and easily reachable by taxi, bus etc. During ekadhasi days there is little rush when it takes more than 3 hours, also during some festivals ( two three times in a year, the details will be available in vittal rukhmani temple webnsight) the crowd is very heavy otherwise online darshan tickets can be booked, free of charge, and the darshan can be had in short time. Very good temple to visit.

Proper infrastructure needed here

Ventilation is ok inside temple but badwe\'s disturb frequently & ask for a pooja donation in turn you can ship the line which should not be acceptible as everyone is equal in front of god. With presence of CCTV\'s also still people asked to keep money by wish or forcefully but again it should be stopped as money might go to un unaudited accounts. I think people should stop this rather than expecting govt or police to do something off course if they wish ! ... No compulsion..........
