     The Shri Narasimha Saraswati Swami Datta Devasthan temple is situated at Narsobawadi, Dist: Kolhapur in Maharashtra.
Situated about 20 km from SANGLI, Narsobawadi is a holy place of pilgrim located on the banks of river Krishna and Panchganga. River Panchganga meets river Krishna at this holy place.

     Shri Datta refers to unity of the three gods, Brahma, the god of creation, Vishnu, the god of sustenance, and Shiva, the god of destruction. Alternatively, these stand for the three ‘gunas’ or qualities i.e.sattva, rajas, and tamas in people.

     Shri Datta Maharaj has taken an ‘avatar’- an earthly form twice. The first avatar was known as Shripad ShriVallabh and Shri Narsimha Saraswati Swami Maharaj was the second avatar, both these avatars appeared during the reign of the Bahamanis.
