The Bhakti-Shakti mural was constructed 20 years ago at Nigdi at a cost of around Rs 2 crore.

The project involves setting up of bronze statues of Sant Dnyaneshwar and Sant Namdev depicting their meeting. The weight of Sant Dnyaneshwar statue would be around 3,000 kg while Sant Namdev statue would weigh round 3,600 kg. There would also be statues of Sant Nivrutti, Sant Sopandev and Sant Muktabai. The total weight of the mural will be around 48,000 kg. It would come up in front of the Sai temple at Wadmukhwadi, Charholi, on a 2-acre land, civic officials said.
