The Parvati temple is a part of a larger complex located on a hill overlooking Pune. The temple itself is historical dating back several hundred years. From the hilltop you can get a panoramic view of Pune. Be warned that there is a bit of a climb to the top but a person with average fitness shouldnt have trouble.

Best time for visiting the temple is in evening... More

Temple was good and the view from the top of the hill was so good. You need to climb 100-150 steep steps. We visited the museum too. Worth it.

Went with friends when staying in Pune. Had a nice time walking around and exploring the temple. We had such good views of Pune and saw the sunset. I'd definitely recommend coming if in Pune or nearby.

I frequently visit this place for morning walk. Fresh air and cool breeze are welcoming. Stairs are little worn out but comfortable for walking
