Nice place to visit

I had been to Osmanabad by road in the month of March 2016. Osmanabad is an important stop-over in the Marathwada region of Maharashtra. The must-visit attractions around Osmanabad include the Tulja Bhavani temple, Kashikund, Naldurg fort and Mankeswar. The Tulja Bhavani temple was built in the 12th century and is dedicated to Tulja Bhavani. This is one among the 51 shakti peetas in India. Kashikund houses an idol of lord Shiva and is a mata located behind Bharti Baba's matha. The Naldurg Fort is believed to be built by King Nataraja and the front entrance of the fort is known as 'Hulmukh Darwaza'. Mankeswar is a village in Osmanabad district and is well-known for the Shiva and Satwai Devi temples.
