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

A small hill located at heart of Pune..of very great historic importance. It is approx. 2000 feet high and has around 100 very steep steps to climb. A great place for exercise lovers. The place is very much crowded in morning with all health freak people and pensioners too. There are many temples on top such as Shiva, Karthikeya, Vitthal... More

There are many small temples on hill top like Lord Shiva, Kartikeya swami, Laxmi Narayan etc. Place is very scenic and view from top is great. You can see long area of... More

This hiilock situated right in the middle of the city gives you a beautifull view espeacially in the evening. There is a temple dedicated to Lord Shiva and the samadhi of Nanasaheb Peshwa atop the...

Parvati temple is a heritage structure in Pune. It was built by the Peshwa rulers !! The climb takes about 15 min but the stairs are very steep. There are several points in between for rest. The view from top is fantastic and on a clear day one can see almost whole Pune City.
