4.8/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web
Visit the source of the Krishna river inside the Krishnabai Temple, where the river emerges from the mouth of a statue of a cow. The temple is said to be a few thousand years old, and, in spite of being in ruins, is kept very clean. Follow the trail which takes you through the forest to the antique temple, providing panoramic views of the hillside. Bring your camera to capture its breathtaking beauty on a photograph. Listen to the priest explaining how the first sunrays fall on the shiv ling, an effigy of the god, and energize the whole complex. It is stated that this is a reason no electricity exists in the temple, as the energy destroys light bulbs.
