The home in which he grew up is but 50 odd paces from the main entrance of the Tukaram Janmasthan Mandir and is worth a quick visit. The home, which must have been larger in its heyday, is now pared down by surrounding encroachment to a single hall with a mezzanine floor doubling up as a patchy looking balcony.
Tukaram Gatha Mandir is a different proposition altogether. It is a new age memorial constructed recently to pay a tribute to the eponymous personage. Space is no constraint here and the memorial feels rather roomy. The unique thing, as anyone who has been here will attest to, is elegant inscribing of nearly '4000 odd Abhangs' on the internal walls of the memorial for the marathi literate, this merits an hour or two immersion. For Tukaram devotees and/or Abhang aficionados, it is a veritable treasure trove. Being neither, still found myself engaged in a fruitless search for "Savle Sundara Roopa Manohara."
