In early 1930s, when the plans for the temple were conceived, Shri Narharpant Ghude, the doyen of the Ghude family, agreed to make available a part of his large house for the construction of the temple.

A Trust was set up and in 1934, the temple with a beautiful idol of Shri Nrusimha Saraswati was consecrated.

The idol in milky white marble is in sitting posture in 'padmasan'.  The facial features are so pleasing that devotees inwardly feel total surrender and satisfaction while having 'darshan'.





In the six decades since the temple was consecrated, the trustees have carried out a large expansion of the complex.  Halls for religious discourses, residential facilities for the visiting devotees, kitchen, dining halls, and an administrative office has been constructed.  The successful execution of temple projects over the last sixty years can be attributed to the vision and dedication  of trustees, their selfless service, and above all, to the blessings of Shri Gurumaharaj.

There are `Oudumber' and `Pimpal' trees in the temple complex.

 Shri Ganesh and 'Shiv-linga' are the other deities in the complex.
