Not so famous but worth going

This place is worth visiting if you are in Pune. Must go if you want to experience an old man made cave right in heart of the city.

The best temple in all of Pune in my experience, steeped in history, beauty and old world charm. Even though its in the centre of the city, the noise and bustle of the road outside dies out as soon as you enter the temple, like the eye of a hurricane.

Nice place to visit in the heart of city. Kept in its original form. One can see the under developed caves, don't know why the work was left unfinished.

It took us a while to get here as many Tuk Tuk drivers dont know about this temple. Ask for Jungli Maharaj Temple. This is next doors. Infact we can visit this shrine by taking a small passageway on the right of Jungli Maharaj Temple. This temple is very beautiful. The main deity is Lord Shiva in the form of... More

It is kept as it was no latest construction... Also as it is in city area pollution is more... The deity is Shiva. The cave was started about 700/800 years ago. The shed for Nandi was made of monolithic construction. The caves and all other Shiva variations were unfinished. It is only one level down from the road

Fantastic place to visit given the fact that this temple was carved out of a single rock. The temple inside is so cool, excellent during summers. The shivalinga is golden and looks majestic.
