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.

Parvati Temple, Pune Reviews
Quite a trek to get to up some steps but well worth it. Excellent views and lots of interesting sights to see. Another easier workout on the way down.
This temple is located on the top of a hill known by same name "Parvathi Hill". You need to climb lot of stairs and it will take lot of effort. Do take some rest in between and drink some water. Coming down is easy comparatively but do come slowly as there is a danger of falling down. Once you reach the top you will also get to see amazing view of Pune City. This is the best place to see aerial view of the city. Temple is colorful with vibrant colors.
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.
Beautiful and peaceful place .. fantastic view of Pune city.. good time to visit in the evening to view sun set .. There is a small canteen there and the snacks are good too
Very nice place. In summers, go very early in the morning. The terrace area around the temple is closed, otherwise one can have superb city view. Some NGO are doing plantation on hill, in few years it will be really green. Main temple is Mahadev and four temples surround it namely, Suryanarayan, Ganapati, Vishnu and Bhavani Maa. Next to this compound there Vitthal Rukmini temple. Next to it is Peshwa Museum. There a small garden next to it and also there two more temples, Kartikey Swami and Vishnunarayan. Place is really. Drinking water is available.
