The Mahabali or Mahabaleshwar Temple is another example of the Maratha heritage of Mahabaleshwar. Built by the Chanda Rao More dynasty in the 16th century, the temple is built in the South Indian Hemadanta style of architecture.

This temple is the reason for name of the town. Mahableshwar was the home of a demon named 'Mahabali'. Old architectural building.

Old, beautiful and serene. Shiv ling here is swayambhu (Not man made). Its in old Mahabaleshwar and is the temple due to which the place got its name. Worth a visit and pray.

Very old temple. You can offer prayer. Located in old Mahabaleshwar. Just beside Panchaganga temple where you can find a water fall of five rivers. There is small market also where handicraft items are sold. Little over priced.
