“Ancient temples Mahabaleshwar, Atibaleshwar and Krishna River Temple”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Nice and ancient Siva temples, unique in architecture. The river temple for Krishna is interesting and very nice - similar to the Tala Kaveri temple for the Kaveri river, though geographically it is unlike Tala Kaveri.

“Ancient & Peaceful..Must visit 3 Temples”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

This is usually the main attraction for pilgrimage tours....Very Ancient and grand temple.....Displays Old Maratha Architectural styles....Its surprisingly cool inside the temple throughout the year...

Few minutes away, the Panchaganga Temple is another mystic place...Origin of 5 rivers including Krishna....before leaving this place, you must visit Krishna Temple, which is some 10 mins tough walk...but MUST WATCH place, for Temple as well as the panoramic view in front of temple!!

“Nice temple”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Panchagagnga temple.It is one of the holy places in Mahabaleshwar . Water from five different rivers that is the Koyna, Krishna, Venna, Savitri and Gayatri join in this place.

Thisis given the name panchaganga because Panch means five and ganga means river. All the rivers come out of a cow’s mouth which is carved out of stone.
there is also ishwar temple here

“Ancient temple”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

A really old temple to the god Mahabaleshwar mentioned in old purana stories. An important part of our cultural heritage. But I wish it can be maintained better - darshan is a farce like the Mumbai Siddhivinayak temple. The Krishna temple a little way down is much better since not many people of the touristy kind visit it.

“Good Temple”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Nice place. Interesting to find a Shiva temple that does not have normal Linga. The surface of linga was like Rudraksha
