In this holy land the marati language sacred book "Jnaneswari" was written by Sant Jnaneswar in 12th century. This holy book could be seen each and every family in the entire Maharastra State and every citizen will chant and read the book every day throughout the year.

Also on this land there was a temple of Karaveereswar; Sant Jnaneswar wrote the holy book Jnaneswari in this temple. We could see today a pillar where Sant Jnaneswar used to sit attached to it. Acutally the Karaveereswar temple was there about 650 years ago, though the entire temple was destroyed due to weather vagaries, this pillar stood as a test of the times for a long period; not only that the pillar is not shifted but it is there where it was when the temple was existing. The present temple is reconstructed as per the direction and guidance of Bansi Tambe Baba. Even today we could see theinscription on the pillar of Karaveereswar Temple like this;


				"Om namah (Kara) Veereswar pitha mahen yath poorv
				(Datt) Akandavarthi thylayar prathimas sadha hi tat
				(roopakaa) nam shatak sankyaa deyyaa achandr soo
				yenk (yaschi) karoothi drustri h tasya (saha)
				poorve vrajyatythaa mangalam mahaashri!"
