On the banks of the Ganges from the vegetable market in Daraganj to Nagvasuki Temple, if you see the Shri Ram Janaki Mandir Sevashram on the western strip between the Dashashwamedh Temple and the Jangamwadi-Math, you can see it as a link in the temple chain, but it’s not just that. This two-domed temple is an integral part of the Marathas’ relationships in Sevashram Prayagraj. As you walk in, the silent-speaking walls tell the story of Chhatrapati Shivaji, the founder of the Maratha Empire.
It would be surprising to know, but in 355 years, in 1666, Shivaji, coming from Aurangzeb’s captivity, had reached Prayagraj while sitting in a fruit basket. After arriving here with his son Sambha ji, he sought refuge in this Shri Ram Janki Mandir Sevashram for eight days with the help of Kalash, a priest from Maharashtra. Then he started by boat from here on the waterway to Kashi and then safely reached his area via Baghelkhand, Bundelkhand, Malwa.
The journey was long, so he left his son Sambhaji at Tirthpurohit and reached Pune via Varanasi, Banda, Bundelkhand. Later, when the pilgrim poet Kalash brought son Sambha ji in a litter to Chhatrapati Shivaji in Pune, he was received in a great way. The Maratha priest Kavi Kalash was not only honored, but also assigned a jagir and a ministerial post.At the same time, Allahabad was also under the rule of the Mughals, so that information about Shivaji’s whereabouts could reach the Mughal court at any time. But Prof. Heramb Chaturvedi, former chairman of the Department of Medieval History at Allahabad University, quoting historian Vishwambhar Nath Pandey, said that Shivaji had given gold coins as a tribute to the Subedar from here in order to keep his kingdom. Starting from Chhatrapati Shivaji and Sambha ji, the process of the marathas who came to Allahabad continued until later. But even before that, Samarth Guru Ramdas had come here.

Teerthpurohit Panchbhaiya’s ancestors had helped
If you drive from the Shriram Janaki Temple next to the Sevashram via Lallu Guru ki Gali to the Venimadhav Temple, towards the north is the residence of Teerthpurohit Panchbhaiya. Ramji Panchbhaiya, a descendant of the Teerthpurohit of Maharashtra who claims to be the descendant of the Teerthpurohit who founded Chhatrapati Shivaji in Allahabad, says the ancestors had five states, so they were called Panchbhaiya. When Shivaji Maharaj settled here on his arrival in Allahabad about three and a half hundred years ago, Panchbhaiya was a large court of priests, now divided into many brothers. On the other hand, the cells in which Shivaji Maharaj stayed in the temple are no longer these cells themselves, but their memories are built up in the temple.
