Its located at a very nice place. Unfortunately you will find a lot of drunk people when you visit there. Guess thats how it has been historically. But very nice location, the view is beautiful and so is the temple

Lonavala is about an hours drive from Mumbai and a visit to this temple is a must to marvel at the dedication and hard work of the people living several centuries ago. This is truly a magnificent contruction in solid granite, and a pius dedication to the Gods of the time.
