The Parvati temple was constructed by Pune's last ruling dynasty ...the Peshwas. Its a simple temple but of a great historic importance in Pune's rich history and heritage. A favourite with morning walkers these days as a climbing its elongated steps is easy for kids and seniors alike. Offers a great view of Pune.

Once you managed to climb the stairs you have a beautiful view down on all Pune and a very peaceful widespread temple area with very interesting wall paintings and a small museum to explore. The whole ensemble could do with a little intensified maintenance, but is a good place to wander around and detect quiet niches and places nevertheless, especially... More

Parvati temple is one of the most visited temples in Pune by morning walk lovers, who typically climb all the way up to this temple. Though the walk is tiring, the breeze and view from above makes it worth the effort. But the maintenance of the temple and its surroundings must be done up well if such heritage sites in... More

U climb up the hill ans there's a temple up there, its was so peaceful to visit the temple.Earlier this would be the highest place in Pune but sadly today, you see many sky scrappers around.Govt should do something to retain the serenity of such heritage places.

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

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
