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.

No proper parking.Park at your own risk. Steps are too much steep. You need to sweat a lot. Main temple building is good. You get good views from the compound wall. 10 Rs. Charge for getting entry to compound wall.
It have nice environment. You can also see very rare things at museum which is available there. View available there is also very beautiful.
Temple is located on Parvati hill.. many temples and museum is there.. morning and evening is best time to visit... Can reach there by 2 ways.. taking 100 stairs or 15min trekking from backside of hill... Good views of city... Fresh air .. not much crowdy.. . Museum entrance fees is 10rs.. place lacks cleanliness... Must visit place
Superb place. Ultimate peaceful temple located on a hill and sorrounded with natural beauty. It has a royal big gun also. Might be it was a security point during maratha Dynasty and they used to watch their enemies movement from this location. Has one snacks center and good for one day outing
Extremely Serene Location. 15 Minutes Trek From Parking area. Splendid View From The Top of Hill.
