Shreepoojak Mandal


Shreepoojak Mandal

The Shree Poojak Mandal is the social forum of all archaks serving the goddess by ancestorship for last 54 generations. The ancestor ship of the archaks is for more than last 1000 years and it is proved on paper in various cases. The main duty of the archaks with the temple is to do all the rite and rituals of the deity and we are proud that it is being done for all those generations without any discrepancies.

There are some 40 odd families keeping the observance of the ancestor ship and most of them do not rely fully on the income from temple. None of the Archaks goes to perform any religious rites or rituals outside the temple. All archak families are well educated and our proud presence remains in every professional field from Engineers, doctors to professional photographers, from chartered accountants to Advocates, from political activists to stage activists, from top rank public officers to Professors and from IMF officials to self employed persons.

With the deepest blessing of Shree Mahalaxmi, the Mandal has extended its hand through its members in all social causes. In case of natural calamities the mandal has let loose its beholding for the victims of the calamity, sometimes through the District administration and sometimes through volunteers of the Mandal.

The Mandal, along with another local NGO runs an Emergency Medical Health facility in Navaratree Mahostsav. A team of best local doctors helps the Mandal in running the facility for almost 18 hours per day. This facility is closed with a big Blood donation camp.

By the grace of Shree Jagdamba the Mandal owns one Modern Ambulance with primary emergency healthcare equipments which runs on no profit no loss basis in Kolhapur city. The Ambulance, when not on call, is parked near temple to attend any emergency.

The mandal has taken responsibility of academic expenses of many poor girls. This project was undertaken recently and right now there are 21 girls under the blessing of Shree Ambabaee. So also the mandal has tried to assist many needy people.

River, Plantations, Water resources cleanings etc. The only lady Snake catcher of this district comes from one of our families.

The mandal has future plans for Dharmshala and free Maha Prasad.
