    Mahabaleshwar temple is the temple from which the city derives it's name. It is a very ancient temple of Shivji. We went on a rainy day and as a result the temple was not crowded. We had our darshan very peacefully.

    Nice view of the Mahabaleshwar valley. Parking is at Lodwick parking and then we need to take a 1km+ small walk / hike to reach the tip

    Route is well maintained by the municipality and views make it worth the visit

    I visited so many temples but visit to this temple is breathtaking. It’s a very old temple of Lod Krishna. The best part of this temple that there is no rush inside the temple you can spend good amount of time inside the temple. Opposite temple there is beautiful view of hills and lake and a waterfall.

    There are shops near temple from where you can buys souvenirs. I visited this temple during rainy season but the best things that you can buy umbrellas and rain coat and footwear easily available.

    There are nice restaurants near nearby where you can have post temple visit.

    The Panchaganga temple is constructed at the confluence of five rivers, Krishna, Veena, Savitri, Koyna and Gayathri. This is one of the major famous temple of the Mahabaleshwar city. The water from all five rivers comes out of a stone curved cow's mouth which is called as Gomukh.

    This temple is originally built in 13th Century by the Seuna king Simhana and went on renovation during 17th Century. There are two water tanks known as Kind. The first Kund has a stone cow sculpture that has a continuous flow of water. The second Kund is also a stone cow sculpture but water does not flow continuously. Second Kund receives water from the first tank when the first tank goes overflows. The Ponds are not so deep and there are only 8 stairs downwards. Both ponds are similar in design.

    This is one of the four main religious temple's of Mahabaleshwar other three are Mahabaleshwar temple, Adibaleshwar temple and Krishnabai temple.

    Mahabaleshwar has several view points but each view point has it's own unique offering. What you get to see from Elphinstone point is a great view of Pratapgarh fort and valleys of river Koyna and Savitri. The cliffs looks majestic. The rivers were dry but their beds were clearly visible.

    A very happening location full of visitors enjoying a boat ride on the lake. Rowing boat and paddle boats options are available . Best time is the evening after 5.30 pm to enjoy the boat ride against sunset.
    Better management of crowd at ticket counter required. Speed boat option should also be there. Quality of life jacket very poor.

    Sunset Point (Mumbai Point) near the MTDC Resort, Mahabaleshwar is famous for its clear and nice view of the setting sun. People gather around eveninf to watch the sun set. There are few jids activity and gaming shops that offer some very basic activities for kids.

    A secluded, quiet uphill trail leading to Triveni Point from where you can see the beautiful area of Panchgani

    There is an entry fee of 25 Rs. The ticket is valid for 5 days from entry date and gives you access to the Lingmala Waterfalls which is good to see when the waterfalls are full of water.

    Not crowded at all. You will mostly be on your own. If you are not used to being alone in nature, you might be frightened but there is nothing to fear

    There is just one uphill trail. Just before you get to the raised platform, there is a trail going off to the right that seems to lead to a lower gazebo but we didn't explore that

    The trail is mostly shaded so we didn't feel the heat. In some places, there are steps that you need to climb.

    Worth it, off the beaten track....
