  • The temple is one of the three temple group located in mahabaleshwar. All the temples are located in the same area. There is a story behind each temple and it's formation. The story dates back thousands of years. Before stepping into temple there are plethora of local vendors to pass through. Somehow to me this ruins the mindset to pray and visit the temple. Also, temple had employed the use of speakers inside the temple premises to educate people on the manners of temple, this also ruins the aroma of praying.
  • Best ancient Temple. Big shivlinga. clean and crowded place, outside temple u can buy wooden toys, bronze things.
