Felt strong presence of Lord Shiva & Ma Parvati. The Symbollic representation of the Linga was one of its kind...in the shape of a rudraksha! Very very beautiful & fulfilling experience

Old Mahabaleshwar has 3 temples by it's names and all are worth a visit. Avoid going there on Monday to get peaceful darshan.
