Visited this small temple complex last weekend. Although it's nothing particularly special, I was in the area to visit the adjacent Jangali Maharaj Temple. Since that temple was closed (at about 3pm on Sunday) rather than letting the effort go to waste I returned for a second visit to the Pataleshwar Cave Temple. I remain not particularly impressed with this... More

This place is surprisingly situated in bustling part of the city. One can add it to their itinerary while on a tour to other attractions in Pune. Quite a good place to visit at around noon time, as the cool interior of the cave provides a respite from the heat. Primarily a Shiv temple, the place has been adorned with... More

We got a rickshaw driver to take us here from our hotel. He wasn't exactly sure where it was and had to ask passers by for assistance. The temple is small and after the cave temples of Lonavala was a disappointment to us, probably not helped by an elderly attendant looking for tips from tourists. This is probably not a... More

The Pataleshwar Cave Temple on Jangli Maharaj (JM) Road is a pleasant surprise, not only to outsiders, but also to residents of Pune. Not many people know about this place, leave alone visiting. Its a nice place to spend an hour or so - ideally before or after lunch time - for the JM road itself is dotted with food-joints.... More

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.
