The temple here is dedicated to Lord Shiva and is one of the twelve Jyotirlingas in the country. Around 20,000 pilgrims annually attend the fair during the festival of Mahashivaratri. This place is about 22 kms from Pune.

A special Hindu pilgrimage site and quite free of tourist stampedes, this Shiva temple was built by a Peshwa ruler and really comes alive during Shivratri.


The temple is rather impressive and beautifully carved and houses one of the 12 Jyotirlingas of Hindustan. Located 122 kilometers away from Pune by road in the northeast direction, this temple is close to Shivneri Fort.
