This is for information:

1.Ekaveera temple is one of the 18 shaktipeethas at mahur.This is at place called Heure which is 19 kms from Mahur.But at Mahur people go to Renuka mata temple only.People from Andhra Visit this temple of Ekaveera

2.The daily schedule of Dattatreya includes Manikarnika Bath at Varnasi ,Biksha at kolhapur ,Sleeping at Mahur.Apart it also includes Lunch at Panchaleshwar.Everyday at 12 noon he has his lunch at panchaleshwar and takes rest and get back to mahur.This panchaleshwar is near to Parli Vaidyanath Jyotirling .I have visited this place personally which is there n many puranas also and place is very close to Rakshas bhavan which is very well known for Shanishwar temple.Panchaleshwar comes in between beed to Aurangabad

3.There is also a place called sarvatirtha which is also must to visit

I don't know about Sarvateertha. Can you please tell me the importance of it. Can you identify it in google map? Have you visited that place? Is it near Mahur?
I asked my elders. Mathru tirtha itself is Sarva tirtha

W.r.t MAtru tirtha ,It is the tirtha where the ashes of Reunuka matha have been submerged.W.r.t Sarvatirtha it is the tirtha where upon instructions of lard dattatreya Parushurama has created this thirtha where all the tirtha's of the world are brought at one place.And hence this place is known as Sarva tirtha.Before doing the cremations to his father and mother Jamdagni and renuka matha parushurama bathed in sarva tirtha and cmpleted formalities.

Frankly whether both are one and same , iam not sure?I have visited matru tirtha and not sarva tirtha and thought of visiting it in my next visit.But heard both are different
