“Balaji temple near Narayanpur,Saswad,Pune”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

It is amazingly the replica of Tirupathi Balaji. The private property owned by trust of Venkys is neat,tidy,clean.the security is tight though at times, we feel it is rather overdone !
They can allow entry via short cut ,while maintaining the security still, instead of going through 3 sides of a temple by old and ailing, taking a long detour, especially ,when there is no crowd but only a handful of devotees, like when we visited on 12 th of nov morning at 11 a.m.
Another good thing about the Trust is that they offer Free Meals to all those who visit the temple, in a large Dining Hall, which is maintained neat and clean.
Another sugestion to trustees is , they can liberally permit cars to drop them near the temple , which would greatly facilitate the old and the not so able bodied, who can not walk long distance.
All in all, one comes out of the Temple with a good feeling and lots of peace filled within, which would linger long after one had come out !
Great effort indeed. Hats off to the Trust.please give wider Publicity.It is about 15-20 ams from Saswad, which is about 30 kms from Pune .it is open for almost 14 hours or so in a day.
