Pancha Ganga Temple - Review
Constructed at the confluence of five rivers, Krishna, Venna, Savitri, Koyna and Gayatri, this temple is a site of major religious importance and is thronged by devotees all through the year. The temple has a beautifully carved gaumukhi, out of which the waters of the five rivers flow. The temple is dedicated to Lord Krishna and has a lovely idol of him. The legend behind the temple is closely linked to Savitri's curse on the Trimurtis, Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva, who flow here as Koyna, Krishna and Venna rivers.
It was constructed by Raja Singha Deo, the ruler of the Yadavs of Devgiri, in the 13th Century. In the 16th and 17th Centuries, Raja Chanda Rao More of Jaoli and the Maratha ruler Shivaji improved upon its structure on a large scale, to whom the temple owes much of its present grandeur.
When your religious pursuits are accomplished, let loose the shopper in you and pick up colorful handicrafts as souvenirs from the shops around the temple. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Mahabaleshwar Itinerary 3 Days.

Pancha Ganga Temple, Mahabaleshwar Reviews
It's a super old temple. Even after so many years it is well maintained. There is a natural stream of water flowing in the temple. The water is super clear without any impurities and therefore locals satisfy there daily need of water through that source. I myself tasted the water, tasted super pure. It's a quite big place. I would recommend you to visit this temple.
Its one of the most interesting temples ever to be visited.Seeing the five rivers flowing and coming together as one is a splendid sight.The taste of the water is sweet & refreshing🌺
This is a great place where five rivers born in mountain of Mahabaleshwar. Gayatri, kaveri, krishna, savitri, Bhagirathi, koyna these rivers are part of it. It is very important place as the panchaganga name specify the place informatively.

A very old temple made of stone. It remains cool even in summer months. The temple houses a Shivling which is in form of Rudraksha and is said to be in 3 parts. The temple is named Panchganga and it is the starting point of 5 rivers, 2 of which are now extinct. It also houses another newly built Krishna temple.
