The name Akluj owes its origin to the Goddess Aklai, whose temple in the town is a fine example in contemporary architecture. Legend has it that the idol of the deity was discovered by shepherds in the waters of the Nira River. Today, the temple is a prime tourist destination in Akluj.
With its grand entrance gate, an imposing statue of Shivaji Maharaj and a beautifully landscaped garden featuring a Japanese pagoda, the Parvati Temple at Akluj is indeed a delightful place. Enchanting visitors and devotees with its blissful surroundings, the inner sanctum of the temple houses marble idols of Lord Shiva and Goddess Uma.
Anandi Ganesh Mandir
The exquisitely crafted Anandi Ganesh temple in Anandnagar locality of Akluj is a prime tourist attraction. Apart from the magnificent idol of Lord Ganesha, a beautiful garden and clean, fresh air add to the tourism value of the place.
Among the rulers who have made Maharashtra proud, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj undoubtedly
ranks at the top. He was not only a great warrior but an efficient administrator
as well. It was during his era that art and architecture flourished, culture blossomed,
the economy prospered and patriotism reached its pinnacle. The life and times of
Shivaji are interesting indeed, which have been vividly recreated at a place called
Shiv Shrushti near Akluj.
