People often skip it as it is a temple. But this temple has its attraction for its own . Go inside and then you will release the beauty of it. Try to think scientific reason for all the 5 streams.

This is one of the must see place to know about countries history behind the rivers and its origin. Just behind the Mahabaleshwar temple, it is located and a very nice place to visit while you are at the hill town.

This is a Krishna temple and the highlight is that is the origin of 5 rivers- Gayathri, Savithri, Keyna, Venna & Krishna which are all routed to the temple and then flow out from a beautifully carved Gaumukh at the top of the temple as a single river. The temple is really old and has ancient history attached so it’s... More

It was a unique experience to witness origin of five rivers at one place. The water was clean and almost everybody had taste and feel of the same. The temple is part of Mahabaleshwar temple premises. A must see.
