“Goddess Ekbeera , a lovely golden face glittering”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Goddess Ekbeera , a lovely golden face glittering with lots of ornaments offered by devotees is residing with her sister high on the hill, just in front of the Chaitya griha Carla caves .Lovely surrounding , lots of strength required to reach her as the steps are stiff .

“"Jai Ek Vira"”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

Visting Maa Ekvira every yr had now become a ritual...

Some Good Points
1. The car now climbs up to half the distance
2. The view of lonavala & surroundings from the top is simply awesome
3. I get peace of mind when i pay homage to EkVeera Devi
4. Improved crowd management with fans in the waiting sheds


What i dont like/ wish for
1. Having a good ropeway like infrastructure atleast for children & elderly
2. A more organized parking lot
3. Steps to be maintained as some have now worn out over passage of time

“Ekveera Devi Temple - A Divine Place”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

The Ekveera Devi temple is about 6 kms from Lonavala and is located on a hill and next to the famous Karla Caves. One needs to ascend around 500 steps to reach the temple. One gets a excellent view of the surrounding from the hill top.

Since the temple is located on hill, visiting during the day is preferable.

“Divine!!”
Reviewed March 18, 2012

I didn't expect to see the temples listed in TA hence have already reviewed about it under Karla caves....any ways this temple is adjacent to the Karla caves....There is a good trek to reach this place, a few hundred steps. This temple is of Kuldevi of Koli's - Goddess of Fisher Folk of Maharashtra. What I found unique about this temple are the garlands that are sold around it.... I found some unique design and colour combinations here. also there were ones made out of dried flowers which were also unique to this place.
