  • I have been to this holy place of Lord Siva this August. It is few kilometers distance Ajanta Ellora caves. This is one of those places, where one can do puja and abhishekam to the lord with your own hands. I felt this is the very satisfying thing in our whole trip to Pune. One should visit this place if got a chance...
  • In Indian culture , during your life time if you can visit all 12 jyotirling you can be lucky and have washed all your sin (bad deeds) of life. This is one of the ancient and heritage jyotirling a temple of lord shiva. Must visit once
  • I had been to this temple on the way to Ajanta and Ellora, it was really calm and serene in the temple. The shiva idol was also good. If you're visiting Ajanta and Ellora, do visit this place which comes on the way.
  • Best place to pray your hearts out, sitting just beside the siva linga. You can touch, clean, pour water, milk or whatever you get like flowers, leaves etc. Do not use the thorny fruits as this might injure the persons who clean the linga. BEWARE - No need to buy any receipts from the people in the temple compound. Have a Happy Darshan
  • Grishneshwar Tour from Pune Attractions: Temple, caves Distance from Pune: 256Km, I got nice experience from Kesarinandan Travels.
