Saswad, Pune: On Tuesday, March 2, the revered palanquin of Shri Sant Dnyaneshwar Maharaj will arrive in Saswad after traversing the challenging Dive Ghat. The municipality has completed all preparations to ensure a grand welcome and comfortable stay for the warkaris (pilgrims).

Preparations and Enhancements

The Saswad Municipal Corporation has meticulously cleaned the Palkhi Tal area and the entire town. Streets have been adorned with chandeliers, and special lighting has been installed at the resting place of Mauli’s palanquin. Additionally, the road from the bus station to the palkhi base features three control rooms: a Mauli reception room, a Sant Sopankaka and Changavateshwar departure room, and a Hirkani cell.

Comprehensive Arrangements

Various agencies, including revenue, health, police, and MSEDCL, have coordinated efforts to ensure the smooth execution of the two-day palkhi ceremony. Saswad transforms into a pilgrimage site during this period, with devotees arriving from surrounding areas to participate in the festivities. The city has a devotional ambiance, with food pantries set up at numerous locations to cater to the needs of the pilgrims.

24-Hour Darshan Arrangements

To facilitate continuous darshan (viewing) of Mauli’s padukas (holy sandals), LED screens have been placed near the control rooms at the palkhi base. The tent setup includes provisions for routine rituals such as the morning maha puja, aarti, and 24-hour darshan. A dedicated team of 1,500 employees and 20 sanitation workers will manage the ceremony. Polythene bags will be distributed to each dindi (group of pilgrims) head, and 1,800 toilets have been installed at 18 locations to ensure hygiene and convenience.

Kailash Chavan, Health Officer Mohan Chavan: “We’ve made extensive preparations, including setting up sanitation facilities and ensuring the area is clean and welcoming for all devotees.”
