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
This very ancient temple is well maintained. Here you feel calmness and soothing atmosphere. Peace and ambience within the temples here. It is said that water of 5 rivers meet here (or someone took here water of many rivers to meet in one). One of the rivers start at this place. This and nearby mandirs fall in forest area, the location and view of valley, mountains and lake is amazing from here and spots in vicinity. Also there are some strawberry farms in near distannce. Note: Photography is not allowed inside temple.
It is intereting to see the claimed sources of 5 rivers. The much newer roof is a pity as it changes the look of the place as it would have been. Still worth a visit.
This temple helps you to regain your inner peace unlike other temples. The interiors, the location, the ambience is just mesmerising. Not crowded at all on weekends also..
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.
Devine place in its own. You must take a bath in this water you will so refreshing after a tiring journey. Must visit in Mahabaleshwar. It's a origin n meeting point of five rivers which goes invisible n appear at different places
