In case you visit Pandharpur or Tuljapur, do visit Akalkot, a divine place to be, it is a place where Swami Samarth used to sit under a tree and would help his disciple in their difficult times.

Akkalkot is a temple dedicated to Shree Swami Samarth Maharaj,a form of Dattatreya.​There is a Banyan Tree near this temple which is believed to be the site where the saint used to meditate.The death anniversary of the saint is also celebrated here.
