#14 of 208 in Things to do in Pune
Visit the divine Ranjangaon Ganpati Temple, a Buddhist monastery with an imposing entrance gate featuring statues of Jay and Vijay (demigod gatekeepers) on the sides. Built in the ninth or 10th century, the temple--the last of eight on the Ashatavinayak Yatra pilgrim route--celebrates the deity Mahaganapati, one of eight incarnations of the Hindu god Ganesha. Admire the east-facing idol sitting in a cross-legged posture, with a broad forehead, 20 arms, and 10 trunks. You can easily access the site, which has a parking lot and charges an entrance fee.

Where to stay in Pune

South-east of the main train station sit most of the accommodations on offer in Pune, with the choice largely revolving around standard hotels featuring small pools and restaurants. You can find some more luxurious options in the more spread-out areas to the north of the city center, and along the rivers that flow through town. Hostels and guesthouses provide budget-friendly options, with the bulk located near the university accommodation districts, and the side streets of the older parts of town.
