Many saints and acharyas have resided here and sang the glories of Lord with love and devotion. Alongside the city, there flows River Bhīma. Having received the shape like curve of the moon, it is also called Chandrabhaga.
On the lush green beautiful east bank of Holy River Sri Chandrabhaga in Sridham Pandharpur, there reside Their Lordships Sri Sri Radha Pandharinath - one of the ISKCON's Major Temples in India. Five hundred years ago Lord Chaitanya visited Sridham Pandharpur, while being on His South-India tour.
