I have been here 4th time for getting blessing of Lord Shiva. Bhimashankar is one of 12 Jyotirlinga. Bhimashankar is 100 km from Pune. You have to step down some steps to reach temple which is somewhat difficult for senior citizen. This is must visit TEMPLE if you are devotee of Lord Shiva.

Wanted to have a day trip with family and this was a good one. There are two routes to Bhimashankar. Prefer the one via Manchar as the road is good from that side. After 26 Kms from Manchar the ghat starts for 6-7 kms, Make sure you have enough Petrol in car at Manchar itself as later there is only... More

I had visited the Jyotirlinga with my family in the last week of Dec 2016. We left Ahmednagar and reached Bhimashankar at around 3 PM. The route was hilly but was interesting. For visiting the temple there were around 250 steps downstairs. But It hardly took 1 hour. You can enjoy hot corns and Sweed Pedas while standing in queue.... More

There are many hotels on the... More

In Bhimashankar, Lord Shiva is believed to have manifested himself in the form of Jyotirlinga. Bhimashankar is also the place from where the river Bhimarathi flows. Since this place is in the midst of a dense forest, the road to reach this place is very scenic and beautiful. One has to climb a hill, pass through remote villages, forest, and... More

Bhimasankar temple is located on the extreme end of Sahyadri mountains in Khed Ghat region. So one can see mountains all around filled with trees and flowing mountain streams. The Bhima River flows from Bhimashankar hills in Kheda region and merges with Krishna River near Raichur in Karnataka. In Pandharpur this river is called Chandra Bhaga. One has to walk... More

This temple can be accessed from mumbai/pune via Talegaon-Wada-Sindhurli-Bhimashankar and also Talegaon-Chakan-Rajgurunagar-Manchar-Bhimashankar. The latter being a longer route transiting the busy townships. The roads are not very good with big humps. Be careful while driving. The temple approaches, pay Rs 20/- for forest entry. Parking is near bus stand. Temple entry is free and has 200 steps downside(4 steps at... More
