Bhakti Shakti[edit]

Bhakti-Shakti is a collection of statues installed by PCMC, in memory of the meeting between great saint Tukaram Maharaj and Chatrapathi Shivaji Maharaj. Bhakti-Shakti as a title represents union of spiritualism and power. Historically Shivaji in his early days of 'Hindavi Swaraj' had come to Dehu to meet sant Tukaram to seek his blessings. This place is located on old Pune-Mumbai highway, sector 23, Nigdi. Renowned sculptor Madan Garge of the Garge Art studio, Nashik, was assigned the work of making the statues. The height of the statues of Sant Tukaram and Chhatrapati Shivaji are 20-foot while the other statues stand at 10-foot. The statues weigh 22 metric tonnes.[1] Statues are placed on a small hillock. Over the years this statue has become face of Pimpri-Chinchwad. Bhakti-Shakti opens in the morning at 6.00 AM to 8.00 AM and 5.00 PM to 8.30 PM in the evening. See updated opening closing hours Last 5 years there is encroachment around the sculpture by local slum area called Ota scheme (Outsiders has spoiled area around.
