Significance of Dehu

Dehu is a neighbourhood in the city of Pune, India. It is known for being the abode of Sant Tukaram
The Samadhi (cremation) of the Marathi Saint Shri Tukaram Maharaj who wrote many poems on Lord Pandharinath (Vitthal).

Sant Tukaram lived in Dehu. His temple is located on the banks of the Indrayani river. This temple was constructed by his younger son Narayanbaba in 1723. A rock where Saint Tukaram was on fast is also here.

Important Places associated with Tukaram in Dehu are:

  • Tukaram Maharaj Janm Sthan Temple, Dehu – place where Tukaramji was born, around which a temple was built later
  • Saint Tukaram Vaikunthstan Temple, Dehu – from where Tukaramji ascended to Vaikunth in his mortal form; there is a nice ghat behind this temple along the Indrayani river
  • Saint Tukaram Maharaj Gatha Mandir, Dehu – modern structure; massive building housing a big statue of Tukaram; In the Gatha temple, about 4,000 abhangs (verses) created by Tukaram maharaj were carved on the walls.
  • Indrayani river flows through Dehu which later flows through Alandi. The place where Lord Vitthal gave blessings to Saint Tukaram, which is now the main temple in Dehu consisting of 'Swayambhu' (self-existing) idols of Lord Vitthal and goddess Rakhumai is situated on the banks of river Indrayani. The region of Dehu is known as a 'Sri Kshetra' as it holds the self-existing idols of Lord Vishnu and Lakshmi in the form of Vitthal and Rukhmini respectively.
