>> Situated in Old Mahabaleshwar, the temple is really peaceful and away from noise. >> Must-see and needs to be very much included in the sight-seeing list. >> The temple visit could be easily accommodated if making a trip to Elphinstone Point/Arthur Seat. >> Ample parking space near the temple >> The Panchganga Temple (Union of waters from five Rivers)...

The inside of the temple is cool because it is stone built. There are three separate temples two adjoining ones and the Panch Ganga at a distance.

This is very old temple surrounded by few more Ati-baleshwar. Also there are 5 rivers which clubs in and nice peaceful atmosphere. Must visit in any season to space some good time apart from party mood.
