Ram-Janardan Temple

The boundary wall and the tank were added later in Maratha Period in the eighteenth Century. Beautiful examples of maratha paintings are seen on the walls of both the temples. Besides the attractive scenes from the lives of Rama and Krishna, the painting of Bedalya Bua Maharaj and Sant Tukoba etc. are quite impressive.

The images of Vishnu installed in between the assembly hall and the interior of Rama-temple belongs to the tenth century and the images of Brahma, Vishnu and mahesha belong to the twelth century A.D.
