It is kept as it was no latest construction... Also as it is in city area pollution is more... The deity is Shiva. The cave was started about 700/800 years ago. The shed for Nandi was made of monolithic construction. The caves and all other Shiva variations were unfinished. It is only one level down from the road

Fantastic place to visit given the fact that this temple was carved out of a single rock. The temple inside is so cool, excellent during summers. The shivalinga is golden and looks majestic.

The place was easy to get to and very quiet when we visited. The echo at the back of the temple was interesting...say Om or anything and it would reverberate! Felt a sense of calm and peace.

Temple's main attribute is its location. it is situated in the mid of city but the place is very calm and quiet. Temple is quite old which gives an insight in traditional architecture. A sure recommendation for visitors in pune. It is situated on JM road( high traffic during office hours) ,hence parking can be issue.
