See a once-center of Buddhism, now a Hindu temple in the cave at Ekvira Devi Temple. The Goddess Ekvira is worshipped in the caves by the Koli fishermen community and the local tribes. Participate in the festivals organized here, ranging from traditional dances to folk musical festivals, all in the name of the Hindu goddess. The somewhat tiring climb is eased by ample shops for refreshment and resting areas, and rewarded with spectacular view from the temple. Be careful of the monkeys and protect your valuables. Taking photos is prohibited. Planning Lonavala trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.

  • Of Ekvira Devi Temple is located directly at the Karla caves and is a "Temple of standard" for non-Hindus nothing special. More impressive, the Karla caves which are much more impressive due to their height are directly adjacent.

  • You will feel mesmerized, if you visit here in monsoon. The environment is so soothing and you will enjoy the trek till temple. View from the top is incredible. Beside the temple there are caves which you can explore, but for that you need to get tickets.
  • Beautiful temple of Ekvira devi is just awesome. And temple situated on top of mountain so views from temple are fabulous. And historical caves are also beautiful & one of the reason to visit. They are also best. If you want to visit this place then rainy season or winter is best to visit because of waterfalls are also beautiful here.
  • One of the beautiful temple in Lonavala. Looks fabulous during rainy season and winter. Also has great view. But you have to climb a lot to reach at the temple. Parking is available but it is not free. Food is healthy but too expensive. Good place for photography.
  • A very nice spiritual experience! Nice trail by road and stairs to reach this temple. Best time to visit before night.
  • Peacfull Environment Hear. The View From Top Is Great. Also there is a Cave Located just beside the temple Named As Karla Caves. One must Visit here in Monsoon and winter For Better Weather and View.
