You may also contact Shrimaan Vilas Pujari / Sadashiv Pujari for performing Gurupaduka Pooja/Rudrabhishekam/Annadanam.

Never to miss “Madukari”

Madukari is a tradition here, it is believed that Lord Dattatreya had told the people that every day he would come to their homes for Biksha. So all the people visiting here need to participate in this. You are supposed to go for Biksha.


The saying of Dattatreya that he would visit houses for Bhiksha seems to be misinterpreted here. There is not a single place where you do not find baggers and they beg in the name of Dattatreya. Sometimes it really becomes difficult to differentiate baggers and non-baggers!!!

Return Journey

The Udyan express departs from Ganapur Road at 5:45 pm. It will reach Bangalore by 9 am.

Finally Have a Nice Trip!
