    Hidden gem near Pune
    This marvelous temple built around 800 years ago. It has faced invasions. Carving done on the each block or pillars of the temple are so fine and beautiful that each carving is master piece of art. It is on small hill top, approximately 60 kms from Pune. The small door of the temple leads into a vast space of stone pillars, exquisite carvings on the walls and excellent views from the windows

    Lesser Known place - Unbelievable Temple Architecture
    This temple is dedicated Mahadevji and is said to be built some 1200 years back. This temple is a protected monument as per the Archeological Society of India and a live temple where Mahadevji is worshipped. Some of the exterior of the temples are destroyed by the Invaders yet its beauty can still mesmerize. This temple has intricate carvings and it's on the top of the hill. The vehicle reaches till top of the temple and there is sufficient parking space. Even during hot summer, you will experience a cool breeze as it's on the hilltop. It's worth visiting. During rains this place looks heavenly. No Entry Fee Ample Parking Space Car reaches till entry point of the temple Use Google Location to trace

I visited this spot along with friends and their family (including kids) and everybody enjoyed a lot. It's about 60km from central Pune about 10km off Pune- Solapur road near Malshiras. Situated on a hill, you can either go by vehicle on small stretch of steep ghat or hike / walk. Good time to visit is a month after start of rainy season. There's a nice view from top.
Fee / ticket: no entree fee for temple but local gram panchayat charges INR 30 as toll.
Parking: about 20 cars can be parked just besides temple
Food: only a small eatery serves local food.
What to see: Main temple along with a couple of smaller ones. Intricate stone carvings. Not sure when original temple was built but it renewed in 12th century by Yadav dynasty, then again in 18th century, and today also you see some work going on.

This marvellous temple is said to be built around 800 years ago. Its shame that it is kept in such a bad condition by govt. it needs to be cleaned and maintained. People are allowed to take food inside the premises and then throw garbage around. I request govt to take control
Of this wonderful place and make sure people don’t ruin it.

Built on the top of a hillock. This is a beautiful temple which is built on the lines of dravidan architecture. An offbeat temple on the hills.
It was an unplanned trip when we took off to this temple with my mother in the month of January 2022. There are no eateries there. When you come down the hill and reach the bottom, there is a small eatery where you get misal pav and the likes and very sweet tea.
The surroundings are calm and quiet. There are many sugarcan and corn farms here.
Its wise to pack your lunch and carry snack if you are visiting this temple.

Bhuleshwar is just a 40 min drive from Pune on a good day. Good idea to get out of town around 7 AM so that the Hadapsaar traffic hasn't picked up. This is a temple supposed todat back to 1200 AD- the carvings and black stone statues are from that period it is said. Many have been damaged by some fundamentalists in the middle years, but whatever remains is beautiful and accompanied by a serene calm. It's a beautiful place for photographers too, the natural light gives many options to snap the statues and carvings.
Typically, the temple can take up to an hour and a half exploring. It is set on a small knoll so has a commanding view of the countryside around. Presently all rural, I hope it stays like that.

This temple is kind of least visited by tourist who want to see Pune in 1 or 2 days. This is around 50 KM from Pune and towards Solapur road. You need to pass UraliKanchan and then keep looking towards your right if travelling from Pune. From road again it is around 10 KM inside. If you are lucky you can see farms full of flowers like Marigold and its other varieties ( Shewanti in Marathi ). You can spot many farms with Onions as well. Last couple of KMs are bit steep and sharp turns as this temple is situated on a hill. However you can take your car upto the steps of temple so no need to worry. Local people celebrate Mahashivratri and you can find some crowd during Mondays so if possible you may avoid these days. Also plan to visit this place when sun is setting or early morning. Completely avoid during afternoon otherwise you will not enjoy calmness provided by temple. Once you enter temple you shall find big Nandi ( Vehicle of Lord Shiva ). The whole temple is famous for beautiful carving on its walls and pillars. Light is little less inside. I believe photography is allowed inside. You can enter the main Gabhara and bow your head in front of ShivLinga. Sit there for a while and enchant OM with deep breathing in and out. The experience you will gain there is will take you out of this materialistic world till somebody else brings you back. Enjoying the wind while standing out side of the temple during evening is a pleasant experience. Its a worthwhile trip to this temple.
