Very peaceful temple surrounded by lake from 3 sides. Almost 25-30 Kms from Pune, near to Loni Kalbhor. Around 8km form Solapur Highway. Temple is devoted to Lord Shiva. It is more famous for Ram, Sita and Lakshman temple. As per one of the story, It seems Rama and Lakshman visited this place during their Vanavas (EXILE) period.
It is a foothill location, after the temple there is a small trek to small hill nearby.
Ample of carparking place (Paid parking), it is in small village, single lane road but drivable. It has a walk way around the lake. lot of space and trees to rest. Nice atmosphere, specially during monsoon.

There are some very beautiful temples and famous tourists attractions in and around Pune.

One among them is the Ramdara Temple in Loni Kalbhor.

Ramdara Temple

Ramdara Mandir

We had planned to visit this temple on onset of monsoon, as it is surrounded by hills and we wanted to be there when those are covered with greenery.

About the Temple
Ramdara is an ancient temple which was rebuilt in 1970 by Dhundhi Baba. Its mainly dedicated to Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati but is also famous for the Ram, Sita and Laxman idols and hence the name "Ram"dara.

The temple welcomes you with beautiful arches and some huge old trees

Inside temple complex

The temple shikara is not visible until you reach the inner complex area due to the dense cover of trees around. Kids can enjoy watching some colorful fishes in the pond, also its home to wide variety of birds if you are a keen bird watcher.

The surrounding of temple and complex is kept clean and well maintained by the local villagers. There is ample space for two and four wheeler parking. Eateries and refreshments stalls are available outside the mandir complex.

Inside Temple
At the entrance you will find Ganesh idol and then few steps downward leading towards the main sanctum.

The sanctum has a Shiv linga, idols of Ram, Sita, Laxman, Dattareya. In front of Shiv linga sits a huge Nandi, there are many sculptures dedicated to saints of Maharashtra and India like Sant Gyaneshwar, Vivekananda etc.

How to reach Ramdara Temple:
The temple is 25kms from Pune and 18km from Hadapsar. There are multiple ways to reach Ramdara, depends on where you are traveling from. We traveled from Wagholi, there were 2 routes available

Wagholi - Hadapsar - Loni Kalbhor - Ramdara
Wagholi - Ahwalwadi - Loni Kalbhor - Ramdara - this one is nearest and avoids the Hadapsar traffic.
Ramdara mandir is located 7km from Loni Kalbhor, so we need to take right turn into Loni Kalbhor village from the Pune Solapur highway and head towards the temple.

There are no public transport available direct to the temple, so better to have some private transport arrangements.

The road conditions from Loni Kalbhor to Ramdara temple is not so good.

Ramdara Temple timing
Temple open and close timing is 7am to 5pm. The temple management is quite strict with the timings, as soon as it is 4.30pm they start calling people out of the temple complex, so better plan according to the timing.

Best Time to visit
Athough its best time anytime to visit any temple but if you are looking to enjoy the lush green nature, June to Dec is best time.

We spent around 2 hours there, had some wonderful Kanda bhajji, sweet corn and left back for home.

Ramdara is a peaceful and serene temple away from the hustle bustle of the city, so make sure you have this location in your #TOGO list.

This place is good for couples as well as family. Don’t expect too much from this place. It just that you can visit and take few beautiful clicks.

It is good if you are coming from within a range of 20km. Not worth if you are travelling a long distance to come here.

We went to Ramdara Temple a week back. It's on the Solapur highway from Pune, after Hadapsar you need to leave the highway and take right turn towards Ramdara. The inner village roads were bit narrow but driveable for both 4 & 2 wheelers. In between some 2 kms before the temple a railway bridge construction is going on, for which we had to take a rough patch of about 500-600 mtrs to take a subway and come to the other side of the railway tracks. Otherwise the entire village road for about 7-8 kms was beautiful and quite natural. The parking is about 200 mtrs from the temple entrance, plenty of parking, also you can park nearby places beside the muddy village roads. The natural beauty of the surrounding was awesome, specifically during the early morning or evening. Keep a note that the temple closes by 5 pm. So visit the temple first and then after coming out you can stay for a while outside to enjoy the beauty. Inside the temple many statues of different Gods, Goddesses and many Saints can be seen. A big lake is there inside where you can feed lots of fishes if you carry puffed rice (murmura). The garden area is closed due to Covid-19 restrictions. Without that itself the temple is quite natural and spiritual. Outside the temple some local village people can be found selling fresh vegetables and all. We did not buy as just wanted to avoid crowd during this pandemic times. Next to the parking a road goes towards the Ramdara hill some plots are getting sold along the farms, which are cultivating cabbages, papayas and other vegetables. There is one another temple is there on top of the hill but that requires some trekking and can be avoided if kids are accompanying. Overall quite beautiful and kids enjoyed a lot. Many people seen doing some picnics on the surrounding fields. Good to leave before the dark and you need to come back crossing the village roads and the patch due to the railway bridge construction.

Its around 25 kms from Pune. Temple is surrounded by water from three sides. There is free parking 300 mts before the temple. There are some people selling seasonal fruits and vegetables around the parking, a bit of bargaining could be done. In the temple pond there are some ducks.
My kid enjoyed a lot playing with them. Also there are fish in the pond. Don't forget to carry some food ( puffed rice- murmura ) for the fish and the ducks. Due to the pandemic the garden area of the temple was closed.

A Very Good Visit....
