There are no significant sign-boards outside and this wonderful temple is underappreciated inspite of being a national monument.

This is close by to Shivaji Nagar, around 1 -2 kms. Pataleshwar Caves is next to the Jungle Maharaj Temple. This place is quite a small cave. There is an Eshwar temple inside and the place can be seen in 10 minutes.

Well worth a visit, a temple hewn in the rock. Also visit the temple right next door. Only opened after four in the afternoon in December.

Brilliant place, peaceful, cool, natural and well preserved. Not much crowded. What is surprising is that these caves have somehow developed in the middle of the city. A must visit heritage site if you are travelling to Pune

The place is nice and calm, not much to boast about caves, its just one small cave, but the temple is nice and a good place to sit and relax

Could not believe u can have such a fantabulous cave temple amidst a city like Pune. Loved the underground stone works inside the cave, the Pandava cooking area, the bull, the soggy rock terrain..a great place to be in.

We walked here from our hotel along the chaotic streets. Entering the grounds/garden creates a sudden calming effect. The caves/temple are clearly old.

I think ,puna city in its present form is almost total contrast outside , compared to the calm and quiet surrounding inside, the temple,because suddenly we go far off from the hustle bustle of (situating busy area )of Shivaji nagar,puna.

Well the first thing I must say is that don't go by name otherwise it will cause frustration. There is no such as "Cave". The area is under ASI Its just an Idol under a stony mandir. That part is implied here as cave. Local autowalas don't even know this temple. It is known for the neighboring Jungli Maharaja Temple.
