On a trip to Pune, searched for attractions nearby and this came up. It is definitely worth a visit, very old temple. The main idol is very well polished. There was no rush and we had wonderful darshan. Surprisingly, in the huge verandah outside the temple, there were several couples.

Old Shiva temple - Excellent to visit, to relive the past and admire the great architectural feet. Salute the people who made it happen centuries ago. Must visit, very serene atmosphere

It is definitely a very ancient looking temple but there is no such thing as cave, also it is not as grand as some of the south Indian temples so just 10 min walk worth
