Beautiful cave temple. Not much climbing. Need to walk a few meters and get down 3-4 steps and you will reach the caves. YOU WALK INTO A NICELY CUT CAVES AND we walk into a beautiful shiva temple. There is a nandi in front of the shiva idol and another big bull outside the temple as well. The caves are... More

It is next to the jungli maharaj temple and easy to locate . Walking past a century old banyan tree, in a cool garden , one enters a sunken area , caused by cutting a huge rock. There is the ubiquitous nandi in a hexagonal mantap. The diety is shiva,in a patal-underground cave- hence the name pathaleshwar-, lodged in a... More

Having lived in Pune for almost 7 years, I had never visited the Pataleshwar temple and was pleasantly surprised when I finally made it there. The minute you turn off the main road, your breath is taken away by the sight of the massive banyan tree near the entrance of the place. Continue on and you come to a flight... More

I suggest visitors to visit this place at night.. the silence and the energy seems high at the peace of the night. I visited this place at 8 at night. It was like visiting the 'Patal' (hell).. every step creeped me, and the silence reverberated around me. I could feel high energy vibrations from the sanctum sanctorium. On finding Eshwar... More

This is not "impressive" in the "big" sense of the word however, you should be in awe of how it was constructed and pay your respects to the stone workers of centuries gone by. 20 minute visit, look around, take a few photo's, off with the shoes and into the cavern you go.

Pataleshwar Temple is located on the start of J.M. Road. It is a very Old Temple. Believe it is one of the oldest in the city. It is made completely from Stone only.

This took only about 10 minute to see but was a really nice balance after seeing the grandeur of the Ganpati temple. This was simple and impressive when you consider it was carved out by hand and not built up with individual stones. Worth a quick stop and close to Laxmi Road and Ganpati temple.

They said it would take about an hour.While waiting there, suddenly it dawned on me that the Pataleshwar Cave temple is also there.Why not visit? It was evening. The lights were on at... More

I thoght that this was a neat place. Alot of people complained that it is half finished but I don't care about that because it is carved into a rock. There were engravings on the floor too which I liked to look at. There were half finished engravings on the walls too. If you are into caves and cave art... More
