About Parvati Temple, Pune
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.

Must include in your Pune Darshana list. Open in all days for all. Very positive energetic religious place. Very calm. You can spend your afternoon/ evening here.Good place for study. Crowded during function only. Must visit place. One of old Temple. Located on back side of Parvati. Good view from back side. Couples should have some decency. lots of open space. Can visit with family. Beautiful view.
Historical place. I was there with my 9 year kid and 6 year nephew. They were engrossed with the museum and temple there. I just wanted to thank the management for preserving all things carefully for future generations to see our history.
View from the top is undoubtedly amazing. You can pay 5 Rs. per head to the man seating inside a temple & you are allowed to go on top of the temple.
My favourite spot for weekend visit. Short trek and then a nice view.
