Also in the afternoon the terrace of the main temple, which gives you majority of the views, get heated up like hell and you need to... More

The temple is the oldest heritage structure in Pune and was built during the rule of the Peshwa dynasty.[1] For visitors, Parvati hill is also an... More

Its not a religious place left anymore, I reached the hill near about 6 PM , seen different temples. It was ok, no body seems to care about temples anymore, there was many couples and group of young student sitting and having fun, its may be coz there is a college near by. Then we reached the top of this... More

Is pretty centrally located so you get to view the whole city from up there. Steps are pretty steep so if you`re like above 90 with a breathing problem you should try some place else. Never got in the temple so no comments about that.

I first visited this temple decades ago. The activity at the temple now is mostly tourist and not as active with devotees as I remember. That is a negative from my point of view. On a clear day you do get a nice view of the city. It is a landmark I would suggest any one in Pune should visit... More

This amazing temple is at the heart of Pune City & visited by many devotees. The breeze in the evening & the view of the city from the top is simply amazing & soothing. Its a combination of a temple cum a picnic spot, or I would say its a good walk for evening. You need to climb a lot... More

We visited in the late afternoon when it was fairly quiet. The view of Pune was great (do pay the R5 to go up to the upper area), the light was wonderful, and the whole experience was enhanced by the music drifting up from the town below. One of my favourite Pune memories.

Peacefully located temple with a view of modern Pune from top, this temple is definitely worth a visit for it's historical importance. The hill top has temples, museum, and garden. There are not many steps, maximum of 100 which one can climb easily. Best time to visit is 7am to 10am in the mornings, when the crowd is less and... More
