Parvati Temple is situated on a small hillock where many of Pune’s population start their day by bowing down to Lord Shiva. Situated at a height of 2100 feet above sea level, this temple offers a fantastic aerial view of this rapidly growing cosmopolitan. A respite from city life, it takes us back to the times of the brave Peshwas.
Parvati has a close association with the Maratha dynasty and is a page out of the Peshwa rule. It was built by Nanasaheb Peshwa, the prime minister of Chhatrapati Shahu Maharajin the memory of his beloved King.
Shahu who loved Nanasaheb like a son, entrusted the entire business of the empire to him and bestowed him with faith and affection. Nanasaheb also spent his last days near to his favourite deity. His Samadhi lies here.
It has a cluster of small temples of different Hindu deities. The main temple is a shrine of Lord Devdeveshwar whereas other temples of Lord Vithal, Lord Vishnu and Lord Kartikeya also are a part of the premises. A museum dedicated to the Peshwas also sits in the premises of the Devdeveshwar Mandir.
Parvati is visited by many citizens of Pune daily and forms a part of their exercise regimen. The hill has 103 steps and can be physically exhausting. Although all the climbing is tiresome, the beautiful panoramic view from the hill leaves a visitor spellbound.
