JEJURI in Purandar taluka, a station on the Southern Railway meter-gauge line between Pune and Bangalore and 32 miles from Pune, is a famous place of pilgrimage. It is more a village than a town and derives its importance from the religious fairs held in honour of the god Khandoba, who is also called Mhalsakant, Martand-Bahirav, Malhari . It is situated on a high level and is surrounded on all sides by fertile and cultivated lands. Khandoba has two temple at Jejuri, one older than the other, both built at the end of an outlying spur of the Purandar range which here sinks into the plain. The new one is larger and stands close to and about 250 feet above the village. The smaller temple, however, is believed to be more sacred. It is built on a small plateau called Kadepathar two miles off and about 400 feet higher.
