Sri Kshetra Ganagapur is a associated with Sri Narasimha Saraswati Swami, the second incarnation of Dattatreya. According to the book Shri GuruCharitra, he promised that he would abide forever at Ganagapura. In the morning, he would bathe at the confluence of the Bhima and Amarja rivers. At midday, he would go through the village asking for bhiksha and accept pooja offerings in the form of Nirguna Paduka at the temple. Devotees believe that by bathing at the confluence, by begging (Maadhukari) from at least five houses in Ganagapura, and by offering Paduka Pooja at the temple, they can experience the living presence of Sri Narasimha Saraswati Swami.
The Nirguna Math is adorned with the Nirguna Padukas. Sri Narasimha Saraswati Swami Maharaj stayed at Ganagapura for a period of 24 years. Shri Guru after his stay at Narsobawadi came to Ganagapur and started living at the Holy Confluence of Bhima and Amarja Rivers (Sangam). He used to come to the village only at Noon for Bhiksha.
