Swami Bramhanand Saraswati, a great disciple of Shri Vasudevananda Saraswati and a renowned Dattabhakta, has been instrumental in establishing Shri Gurumandir. The house where Shri Nrusimha Saraswatiswami was born is owned by the famous Ghude family. They acquired it from the descendents of the Kale family in which Shri Nrusimha Saraswati was born.


In the early 1930s, when the plans for the temple were conceived, Shri Narharpant Ghude, the doyen of the

Shri Gurumandir Mahadwar

Ghude family, agreed to make available a part of his large house for the construction of the temple.
