Bhatkanti - Pune, Forts, Trekking

Bhatkanti - Bhuleshwar

Just about 50 Kms. from Pune. Bhuleshwar is a nice and cool place to visit. Bhuleshwar is famous for the temple of Lord Shiva. The temple situated on a hill, was built during the era of Pandavas.

Originally , it was a fort called as 'Mangalgadh'. The temple was built in 13th century. Here beautiful carvings dominate the walls from the beginning enhancing it's stone structure. Bhuleshwar has historical significance as it is the place where Devi Parvati danced for Lord Shiva and after they went to Kailas and get married. Thus this place is very important both historically and mythologically. Though this is place is having such importance, Bhuleshwar is one of the ignored places in Pune region. This is place is crowded in Shrawan and Mahashivratri only.
You can see Jejuri on south and Purandar on south-west and Dhavaleshwar on West.

Truly Bhuleshwar is a place worth to visit and spend a day.
