Narsobachi wadi is famous for its Dattatreya temple and the samadhi of the saint Swami Narsinha Saraswati .


It is located near Kurundwad, 40 kms from Kolhapur.


The original temple was built almost 600 years ago and has undergone several renovations since then.



The temple exists at the confluence of the Krishna Panchaganga rivers.

  2. As far as my understanding goes narsobacha wadi is known for lord narsimha saraswathi's feet impressions/padukas which is being worshiped. As it is mentioned in the beginning of this write up that "this place is famous for Sri narsimha saraswathi's samadhi" which needs to be corrected.
