Pithapur is a small village and we reached there around 1130 PM. We were fortunate to get accomodation with the grace of Guru Dattatreya. in the next morning, we spent 2-3 hours in the temple premises. We all wanted to go to Pithapur for years and finally we could make it to take blessings of Lord Dattatreya’s first incarnation Sripad Srivallabha.
