With their history dating back to the 8th century, these splendid historical Pataleshwar caves are located in the middle of the Jangli Maharaj Road in Shivaji Nagar, Pune. A rock cut shrine, made from one single hard stone is dedicated to the Deity Pataleshwar. With colossal pillars and an incredible architecture, this temple can even be somewhat comparable to the excellence and grandeur of the Elephanta caves in Maharashtra.
On gaining entrance into the temple, you can glimpse the main highlight of this temple which is a Nandi Mandapam. One of the finest examples of great architecture and pilgrim devotion, this place should be a part of every traveller’s to-do list.
