Dating back to 400 years, the destination holds immense historical significance because of Shri Babuji Naik. According to the chronicles of history, it is said that Baramati was under the control of the Yadavas of Devagiri. However, after the fall of the Yadavas, the city went under the reign of Bahamas of Gulbarga.
The historical references of this beautiful place can be seen in the books written by two famous historians, namely Dr. Shejwalkar and Mr. Grant Duff. According to Grant Duff, in 1603, Baramati was presented to the grandfather of legendary Maratha king Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, Malojiraje Bhosale by Nijam Shah of Ahmednagar. As a result, the destination became a part of the great reign of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. During this time, Baramati was under the administration of Dadoji Konddeo.
In the 17th century, after the decline of the Maratha Empire, the destination was ruled by the Mughals of Delhi. However, after the death of Aurangzeb, the city was again won by the Marathas and was ruled by them. In around 1745, the destination was handed over to Babuji Naik by Shahu Maharaj.
The city is famous for its two ancient temples, Shri Kashivishweshwar Temple and Shri Siddheshwar Temple, which were constructed around 750 AD. Known as an architectural gem, Shri Siddheshwar Temple is constructed on the east bank of the river, while Shri Kashivishweshwar is on the west bank. Both these temples are the chief attractions of the place. Reference of these temples can be found in the epic Shiv Lilamrut written by famous poet, Shridhar Swami.
