Tuljapur is a quite neat and tidy town with roads paved with
concrete and lighting provided by electricity, located near
Sholapur. It is famous for the
Bhavani Temple. Tuljapur is one of the four Shakti Peethas of Maharashtra
where mother Goddess, Shakti is worshipped. The temple is located on a
hill known as Yamunachala, on the slopes of the Sahayadri range in
Maharashtra near Sholapur.
As one descends the hill there is a temple dedicated to Ramavardayini devi. This shrine is closely linked with the Indian epic Ramayan. It is believed that this is the devi that gave her blessing to Rama who was searching for his wife. The image is eight- armed like the one of Bhavani.
