3.   Whats best time to visit Ganagapur ?

Ans: The first answer to raise is try to visit temple on weekdays rather than weekends, Full moon days/Holidays/Festivals. We believe everyone gets off or holiday on weekends/Holidays which arise huge crowd gathering in and around Ganagapur temple which makes all arrangements difficult and even temple seva.


Weekdays Temple will be empty and there won’t be huge public gathering so all Darshan/Pooja will be carried out smoothly with devotees 100% peaceful and satisfaction of their visit that we can assure you.


Don’t make mess for yourself and others also by visiting temple at very peak time of 11.30-12.30PM when temple is over-crowded for Arathi and Bhiksha which will make everyone difficulty to keep one step ahead in temple.


Since Ganagapur (Kalaburagi District) located in Northern part of Karnataka state which almost has like summer like weather in all seasons. In summer it will be very much humid and hot condition. In rainy Ganagapur doesn’t come under heavy rainy place so any floods kind of situation arise, but yes if any water storage place leave water to river may get plenty of water to river but that doesn’t affect visiting temple at all, and in winter season its decent cold place to stay in. So you can plan for visit all time but June-February will be ideal time in respect with climate. (You will get nice/decent stay place with Air Conditioned rooms, Guest houses to stay in for your comfortable stay)

5.   Do we need to visit temple only on Pournima/Pournami/Full moon day?

Ans: A Big No, there is no any particular place where its written or mentioned that temple needs to be visited only on full moon day not on other day or its having importance on visiting full moon day. But yes visiting Thursday is treated as Auspicious as its God Dattatreya’s Day. It’s all Astrologer belief/or saying to visit temple on full moon day which made a lot of public gathering on that day. Many devotees got blessed by god by visiting in normal days also, its kind request to plan other than full moon day to ease for everyone as a visitor and as a service provider too....

Pallakhi time(7.30PM-8.30PM)  If you opt or enrol for the Palakhi Seva you can touch the Gods Evening Utsav Murthy which will be kept in Pallakhi and you can sleep on the floor while Pallakhi will take 3 Pradkshina to temple and Pallakhi will go above your complete body ( It Means whatever issues are there in body and soul will get solution from God Specially Health illness issues will get resolved. The above will called as Lotangan Seva) If there is huge crowd where all devotees cannot be fulfilled then only 3 rounds will take place and Lotangan seva will be cancelled.

13. We heard Ganagapur is famous all Black Magic problems issue resolving place?

Ans: Yes, People have a lot of belief that after visiting Ganagapur devotee will overcome from the problem of Evil Spirits/ Black Magic/Bhhot/Preeta/Pishacha Baadha / Karani / Bhanamati or bad deed done by others as a part of Irshya/Mathsara/Brotherhood ship/ Dispute or any other reason.

Since Ganagapur is Siddha Bhumi by holy his presence of Shri Nrusimha Sarswati in the form of Nirgun Paduka and swami will come to temple to ask Bhisksha at 12PM everyday so it’s observed that everyone will get gods real blessings if they participate or be in temple by 12PM Arathi/Bhiksha time while drum beating i.e. Choughada will start.

Guru Charitra Chapter no 20 and 23 clearly tells that how Guru has rescued his adobe followers or devotees by Evil Spirits and Bhasma Raksha which they were suffering from long time. Many of Gangapur followers, Devotees have witnessed that after visiting Ganagapur they got relief from such evil spirits or any other black magic issues mentioned above. For some of long disease or problems it may be needed that devotees need to stay for long period of time by by doing every day Kakad Arathi at 2.30 then Every day Ashta Teertha Snan, Asking Bhiskha and attending all Arati of temple viz 6AM, 12PM, 8PM, continous Pradakhsina to temple and Audumbar tree at Sangam with great devotion and Bhakti. It will be difficult to say in how many days the issues will get resolved or clear but many devotees got cleared only in one visit to temple and Darshan and many after doing some Pooja/sevas etc.

Note: There is no particular person in Ganagapur exists who does remove the black magic/evil spirits from someones body or soul. It all happens with Guru Nrusimha Saraswati Maharajs sole wish when to recover the illed person not by a specific person who can tell definitely the answer for this and there is no any monetary charge to it also. If devotees can bear some monetary terms then they can do some pooja/seva if they wish to do or else with whole hearted devotion folding hands in front of God are enough to get his blessings.

For any clarification regarding above information/matter for any Pooja/Stay purpose get in touch with Main Priest Vallabh Dinkar Bhatt Pujari on 9496456789 for better arrangements.
