#3 of 8 in Historic Sites in Lonavala
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.

Where to stay in Lonavala

A resort town through and through, Lonavala has a large collection of accommodations to meet the needs of its guests. The built-up area around the train and bus stations provide some of the most suitable accommodation in town for budget-conscious travelers, including simple guesthouses and a couple of hostels. To the north around the bend of the Old Mumbai-Pune Highway, things get a little pricier and a little more luxurious, although standard hotels and guesthouses can still be found. Following the main roads out of the urban area in most directions, you'll find resorts in scenic spots, offering the chance to enjoy the fresh air.
