This ancient temple is located around 1 hr from Pune. Very peaceful and divine ancient temple of Lord Shiva. The nearby botanical garden is great. It has several walkway paths giving u a nice jungle walk feeling. Also has a waterfall during monsoons. Worth a early morning visit anytime of the year.

The temple is situated in Nasarapur Village and can easily be reached.The architecture style of this temple reflects the old and local culture of Nasarapur Village.The park surrounding the temple is quite big and it requires hours to explore.

Well, the place is beautiful. Not much to do honestly. Just walking around the greens if that pleases you. with friends, we spent a good time talking and singing. The dam on the back is usually dry. Monsoons should be beautiful here! Get here in the perfect season.
