"It was a nice visit to Tuljabhavani"

  • 3.0/7
  • Posted Feb 27, 2016
Around 40 kms from Solapur you reach Tuljapur to visit Tuljabhavani. To visit this place you can hire a cab or look for public transport. It takes around 2hrs to reach here. Always a hustling temple but when I visited this place in the evening it was empty. We could take mates darshan very freely and visit the surrounding with ease. A must visit place for religious travellers. You can combine Tuljapur and Akkalkot as there is a small road connecting both these places. Best time to visit is in winter or late monsoon or it gets too hot here.

"A small town with nice temple"

  • 4.5/7
  • Posted Jun 24, 2015
Tuljapur is a small town. Our destination was to visit Tuljabhavani Mandir. It is a walking distance from the bus stand. It is like any other temple area of Maharashtra with usual shops selling prashad, flowers and other puja requirements.

There are shoe/chappal stands for your footwears. There was no crowd when we reached there at 4:30 P. M. Had a good/peaceful darshan set for a while in the temple complex.

We after gathering our footwear, walked to the bus stand, missed three buses as there were no vacant seats, got a Karnataka ST bus in five minutes and reached Solapur in one hour.
