“Hill of history and best view of Pune!”
Review of Parvati Temple

Parvati Temple
Ranked #16 of 287 things to do in Pune
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 5 January 2012

Parvati once served as the place of inspiration in Peshwa times. It still has those beautiful temples and old wooden wadas (buildings). We like taking steps up and down, and going through temples, and looking over beautiful vistas across Pune from all the directions.

Parvati is one of the favourite relaxation spots for the residents of Pune. The height of Parvati hill is 2100 feet above sea level and 260 feet from the city level. The hill offers an aerial view of the city and the most picturesque scene in the early hours of the day. Parvati hill houses one big and three small temples.

Parvati is the daily visiting place for a number of citizens and for many people, going to Parvati (103 steps) forms a part of their daily exercise regimen. Being the highest point in Pune and having conveniently located observation points, the beautiful panaromic view of Pune city leaves visitors spellbound. Beautiful sunrise and sunset views are like the icing on the cake.

This place is walkable from Swar gate bus stop. You have to hike for 10-15 minutes. This temple needs short hike of 10-15 minutes. There is smart and short collection at the museum nearby. This hillock has backing by some local green organization, so trees are named and protected.

Climb is tough not because of the height but the quality of steps. Tourist facilities like quality drinking water or place to remove shoes is not provided.
seems that the temple is lime paint covered and that takes away the antique look.
Museum is a diappointment not because of the content alone but also it is poorly maintained.
The hill requires cleaning one time and then restrictions should be placed on littering. there is no information on display on the history of temple and origins.

Climbing the stairs was an experience. Nothing to dislike as it wasa good exercise...
