This is an active 8th century temple carved out of rock! So rustic, yet so amazing. Nothing fancy about it and it's not necessary. What an amazing site! We seem to struggle to maintain US sites that are barely 200 years old. Love the preservation of the history and fabric of this country!

I visited here in December during an odd day. Weekends may be crowd. A peaceful environment. Inside the temple, very calm. It's one of the great architectural monument carved out of a single stone. The premises needs to be maintained. Sadly, the municipal corporation of the city ins't interested much in preserving such places.

This beautiful monolith temple of Shiva has been built in the 8th century! It is a temple carved in a cave and is a peaceful spot from the city hustle bustle! Worth seeing, undoubtedly!

Ended up there while my husband was having a business meet on JM Road. Peaceful, clean and interesting. Probably the oldest attraction of Pune yet many locals didn't know about it. It's worth a short visit on the way to FC road or else.
