Religiously good place !!!

Alandi is a samadhi place of great saint Dyaneswar maharaj. He was born in Aapegaon in Maharashtra. After death of his patents he travelled all over Maharashtra to give knowledge to people. In little age he got so much followers. He wrote 'Dyaneswari'.
Dyaneswar maharaj took samadhi in alandi at the age of 14.
All the devotees comes here to praise the 'padukas' of Dyaneswar maharaj.
I proudly say that I am fortunate to stay in Pune with these religious places.
You all should visit here. If you visit once I am sure that you will visit here again.
