Dehu is famed as the birth place of the poet saint Tukaram and is an ancient city located on the shores of the Indravati River. Tukaram, one of the most revered ancient poets in Maharashtra and his work ‘Abhang Gatha’ has been considered as the one of the greatest literary work in Maratha.

Dehu Temple, built by the youngest son of Tukaram, is the main attraction of Dehu. Dehu temple is assumed to be built during the 18th century and the main deity here is Lord Pandurang. The place in which Tukaram attained Moksha (salvation) is nearby to Dehu, a rock famed due to Tukaram’s 13 day fast in standing and a garden in the dedicated to the memory of his wife are popular here.

There is another temple that is dedicated to Lord Ayyappa, established by Ayyappa Seva Sangam which is also popular here. Ayyappa devotees throng to this temple during December 16 to January 15, the Mandala festival period.
