Hi. Let me start off by stating that dont keep your expectations way too high when u come to Mahur. This is small town around 70 kms fromYavatmal famous mainly for only one thing and that is the Godess Reunka temple.

It is a 4 hour drive from Nagpur and the roads are pretty descent. The temple itself is around 3.5 Kms from main city and there is a good road all the way upto temple. You still need to climb a few steps though. However, watch out for new concrete stairs which are more easier than the older stone ones which are more steep.

The temple itself is quiet modest. The unique thing which I found here was the offering of bettlenut leaves more popularly called "Paan " or "Tambul" in India. You purchase all the raw material such as leaves, lime, spices, etc and then hand it over to the huys seating with their crshers " sil - batta" outside the temple. They will grind it for a mominal fee ( around Rs. 10) and handover the tambul to you for offering.

The temple is nice and give out good vibes.

There is also a descent fort nearby although much of it is in ruins now. While at Mahur you can also visit the Datta temple.

Options for staying in Mahur are very limited. We stayed at "Hotel Devi Pride" which was ok. Most of the folks visiting the temple are locals and from nearby areas and that is one of the reasons for non variability of good hotels.

Anyways, its a descent place to visit if you are religiously inclined.

It's one of the 3 Shakti Peeths in Maharashtra. It's a holi place. Mandir is normally crowded specially on Tuesdays and Fridays. If you want to avoid crowd try reaching temple early morning. Arati is normally at 11.30 am. After the parking, there are around 175 steps to climb. Steps are not very high. You can get flowers, coconut etc till the last step so no need to carry from downstairs, if you don't want to carry much luggage while climbing. Main prasad of Renuka Devi is Tambul. It's powder form of Paan (Betel leaf) and other ingredients. One can get that at temple.

If you are a staunch devotee of the Godess and the purpose of your visit is to seek the blessings of the Deity then please do go here. However, If IF you are looking for some marvelous sculptures and eye-catching masterpiece statues, then this temple can be a slight disappointment. A few dozen steps below the Renuka Devi temple is the Temple of Parashuram. While temples dedicated to Lord Ram, Shri Krishna and even Narasimha are infinite, temples for Parashuram are few and far between, so If you are a student of mythology, the Pandit will tell you some interesting tales.
